美高官访华,将面临台湾军售和货币议案“拷问”China Prepares 'Hot Seat' for US Envoy on Taiwan, Currency

10 October, 2011

中国表示,星期二,在与美国助理国务卿坎贝尔在北京举行会谈之际,将向他表达中国对美国最新向台湾出售武器的不满。中国外交部副部长崔天凯将代表中国方面参加会谈。他星期一说,美国上个月宣布的价值58.5亿美元的军售将损害中美两国关系。

崔天凯还对美国国会参议院正在讨论的一项货币议案提出批评,该议案提议对那些操纵货币的国家实施新的关税。他说,如果议案变成法律,将会引发一轮贸易战,两国都将因此而蒙受损失。

China says it will express its displeasure over the latest U.S. arms sales to Taiwan during talks in Beijing Tuesday with U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Kurt Campbell. Vice Foreign Minister Cui Tiankai, who will represent China in the talks, said Monday that the $5.85 billion sale announced last month will harm relations between the United States and China.

Cui also criticized a bill being debated in the U.S. Senate that would provide for new tariffs against countries that manipulate their currencies. He said if the bill becomes law, it will spark a trade war that will be damaging for both countries.
