每日跟讀#598: Duterte threatens ’war’ against Canada

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has threatened to "go to war" with Canada if the country doesn’t take back tons of trash a Canadian company had shipped to Manila.

菲律賓總統羅德里戈.杜特蒂威脅向加拿大「開戰」,如果該國不將一家加國公司運到馬尼拉的大量垃圾取回的話。

Duterte made threats Tuesday about dozens of shipping containers filled with Canadian household and electronic garbage that has been rotting in a port near Manila for nearly six years. More than 100 of the containers were shipped to Manila by a Canadian company in 2013 and 2014, improperly labelled as plastics for recycling.

杜特蒂週二對加國祭出威脅,因為裝滿加國家庭與電子垃圾的大量裝運貨櫃,在馬尼拉附近一座港口已腐爛近6年。2013至2014年,逾百個貨櫃由一家加拿大企業運至馬尼拉,被不當地標示為回收塑膠。

Customs inspectors in the Philippines found they actually contained non-recyclable garbage, including soiled adult diapers and kitchen trash. The Philippines has been calling on Canada for years to repatriate its trash.

菲律賓海關檢查員發現,這些貨櫃裡面實際上裝有不可回收的垃圾,包括髒的成人尿布及廚餘等。菲國多年來一直要求加拿大將自己的垃圾運回國內。

Duterte often uses bombastic statements. Earlier this month, for instance, he threatened to send his troops on a "suicide mission" if Beijing didn’t lay off a Manila-occupied island in the South China Sea.

杜特蒂經常使用誇大的聲明。例如,他在本月初曾威脅要派遣軍隊從事「自殺任務」,如果北京不在一座馬尼拉佔領的南海島嶼停止活動的話。
