美国加拿大将主办峰会推动向朝鲜施压 US, Canada to Host Multinational Meeting on North Korea Crisis

美国和加拿大2018年1月将共同举办一个有16个国家参加的峰会,显示国际社会团结一致应对日益加剧的朝鲜核武项目威胁。

美国国务卿蒂勒森和加拿大外交部长弗里兰星期二宣布会议明年1月16号在温哥华举行。蒂勒森和弗里兰在宣布之前在加拿大首都渥太华举行了会谈。

蒂勒森说,峰会的目标是推动全球向平壤施压的努力。朝鲜加快了核武器和弹道导弹试验,增强其能力的速度。朝鲜上个月发射了一枚新型洲际弹道导弹,可能可以打到美国东岸。

参加温哥华峰会的16个国家包括1950年到1953年朝鲜战争期间派军队帮助韩国的国家。16个国家是澳大利亚、英国、加拿大、土耳其、新西兰、菲律宾、泰国、法国、埃塞俄比亚、希腊、哥伦比亚、比利时、南非、荷兰、卢森堡和美国。日本、韩国和印度也将参加会议。

The United States and Canada will co-host a 16-nation summit next month in Canada in a show of solidarity against the escalating threat posed by North Korea's nuclear program.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and his Canadian counterpart, Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland, announced Tuesday the meeting will be held January 16 in Vancouver. Tillerson and Freeland made the announcement after holding talks in the Canadian capital, Ottawa.

Tillerson said the summit is aimed at advancing "the global pressure campaign" on Pyongyang, which has accelerated tests of its nuclear and ballistic missile capabilities. The North test fired a new intercontinental ballistic missile late last month that could potentially reach the eastern United States.
