美国国务卿克林顿说,她准备向泰国提供大规模的洪灾援助。克林顿预计会在前往印尼巴厘岛参加东南亚国家峰会的途中于星期三在泰国作停留时宣布这一援助计划。预计这位美国高级外交官还会访问泰国遭受洪灾的地区,并与泰国总理英拉会晤。她到访泰国时,联合国秘书长潘基文正在那里。潘基文在与泰国总理举行的联合记者招待会上说,联合国准备好协助泰国政府的救灾努力。

U.S. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton says she is ready to offer a substantial package of flood assistance to Thailand. Clinton is expected to announce the aid package during a stop Wednesday in Thailand on her way to the Southeast Asian summit in Bali, Indonesia. The U.S. top diplomat is also expected to visit flood ravaged areas in Thailand and meet with Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. Her visit coincides with that of United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. The U.N. chief told a joint news conference with the Thai prime minister the world body is ready to help the government's relief efforts.
