川普访沙特将就伊斯兰教发表演说 Trump to Give Speech on Islam While in Saudi Arabia

美国总统川普计划在即将对沙特阿拉伯进行访问期间,就伊斯兰信仰发表重要演说。沙特是伊斯兰教大多数圣地的所在地。

美国国家安全事务顾问麦克马斯特星期二对记者表示,星期五将启程访问沙特的川普总统,将与来自50多个穆斯林国家的领导人举行会晤并共进午餐。他将发表“一次激动人心的直率演说,演说将兼顾对抗激进意识形态的需要,以及川普总统所希望的伊斯兰教的和平愿景” 。

麦克马斯特表示,川普作为总统的首次出国访问,旨在促进穆斯林、犹太人和基督徒之间的团结,川普总统此次9天5国之行,还将访问以色列和梵蒂冈。

川普作为一名基督徒,在竞选白宫总统职位以及就任总统4个月来针对穆斯林的言论和政策,引发了一些最具争议的时刻。

U.S. President Donald Trump plans to give a major speech on the Islamic faith during his upcoming visit to Saudi Arabia, home to the religion's major shrines.

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster told reporters Tuesday that Trump, who is leaving for Saudi Arabia on Friday, would meet and have lunch with leaders of more than 50 Muslim countries and deliver “an inspiring, direct speech on the need to confront radical ideology and the president's hopes for a peaceful vision of Islam.”

McMaster said Trump's first overseas trip as president is aimed at promoting unity among Muslims, Jews and Christians, with visits also set for Israel and the Vatican as part of a five-nation, nine-day trip.

Trump, a Christian, has sparked some of the most controversial moments of his campaign for the White House and his nearly four-month presidency with comments and policies related to Muslims.
