21 September, 2011

美国总统奥巴马星期三向联合国大会致辞时,预计将把重点放在美国对“阿拉伯之春”革命的反应和中东和平努力上。白宫说,奥巴马将谈到介入利比亚事务“史无前例的授权”是国际合作能取得成就的例子,并讨论美国对一年来阿拉伯世界“地震式”民主变革的回应。
  
星期二公布的奥巴马讲话的预先介绍说,奥巴马总统将探讨“新接触时代 ”,在这个时代里,他的政府“结束了美国在一系列问题上毫无必要的孤立状态”。奥巴马在联合国发表讲话时,美国及其主要外交伙伴正在加紧外交努力,阻止巴勒斯坦争取获得联合国安理会承认其国家身份的努力。白宫总统国家安全事务助理本·罗德星期二说,奥巴马将强调美国对以色列的坚定支持,但也会强调任何有意义的解决方案必须来自两方的直接对话。

U.S. President Barack Obama is expected to focus on the U.S. response to the "Arab Spring" and Mideast peace efforts when he delivers his address at the annual gathering of the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday.The White House says Mr. Obama will speak about the "unprecedented mandate" to intervene in Libya as an example of what international cooperation can achieve, and discuss the U.S. response to a year of "seismic" democratic change in the Arab world. 
  
A preview of the speech released Tuesday said the president will also speak about a "new era of engagement" in which his administration "ended needless American isolation on a range of issues."Mr. Obama's U.N. speech comes as the United States and its key diplomatic partners are involved in intense diplomacy to stem a Palestinian effort to secure statehood recognition by the U.N. Security Council. On Tuesday, White House Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes said the president will underscore firm U.S. support for Israel, while also emphasizing that any meaningful solution must come about by direct negotiations.
