美国对巴勒斯坦新总理人选表示欢迎 US Welcomes Selection of New Palestinian PM

美国对巴勒斯坦的新总理人选表示欢迎,并说学界人士拉米•哈姆达拉赫是在面对挑战和机遇的时刻被任命为总理的。

巴勒斯坦民族权力机构主席阿巴斯责成哈姆达拉赫在约旦河西岸组建巴勒斯坦新内阁,以取代萨拉姆•法耶兹。法耶兹于4月宣布辞职,并于本月正式离职。

美国国务卿克里星期日发表声明,祝贺哈姆达拉赫就任,并表示美国可与巴勒斯坦新政府合作,探索通过谈判方式与以色列达成以巴两国共存协议的途径。

控制加沙地带的伊斯兰激进组织哈马斯拒绝接受对哈姆达拉赫的任命。哈马斯发言人说,这项任命是非法的,并声称这一任命不会有助于巴勒斯坦实现团结。

The United States has welcomed the selection of a new Palestinian prime minister, saying the choice of academic Rami Hamdallah comes at a "moment of challenge" and a "moment of opportunity."

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas asked Hamdallah to form a new Palestinian Cabinet in West Bank, replacing Salam Fayyad, who announced his resignation in April and formally leaves this month.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry congratulated Hamdallah in a statement Sunday, saying the United States can work with the new government on a path to a negotiated two-state settlement with Israel.

The Islamic militant group Hamas, which controls the rival Gaza Strip, has rejected the appointment.  A spokesman calls it "illegal" and says it will not help bring Palestinian unity.
