美国务卿因因肠胃病毒推迟中东之行 Clinton Trip Delayed by Stomach Virus

10 December, 2012

美国国务卿克林顿因肠胃病毒感染被迫推迟一天前往中东地区。她此行对叙利亚反对派具有重大影响。
 
克林顿国务卿原定星期一飞往摩洛哥,参加叙利亚之友组织的会议。国务院发言人星期天晚间宣布,克林顿将于星期二启程飞往摩洛哥。
 
这次会议预计将集中讨论20个月之久的叙利亚危机,以及支持叙利亚反对派的途径等议题。
 
此后,克林顿国务卿将前往突尼斯和阿拉伯联合酋长国访问。
 
 A stomach virus is forcing U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to delay by one day a Middle East trip that has implications for the Syrian opposition.
 
Clinton was scheduled to fly to Morocco on Monday for a meeting of the Friends of Syria group.  A State Department spokesman announced late Sunday that Clinton will now leave for Morocco on Tuesday.
 
The meeting is expected to focus on the 20-month-old Syrian crisis and ways to support the opposition.
 
Following the meeting in Morocco, Clinton will travel to Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates.
