South Korea president calls on China’s Xi to do more on North Korea nuclear program

南韓總統呼籲中國國家主席習近平在遏止北韓核子計畫上有更多作為

· 每日跟讀單元 Daily English

In an interview with Reuters ahead of his trip to Washington next week for a summit with U.S. President Donald Trump, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said ’strong’ sanctions should be imposed if North Korea tests an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) or conducts a sixth nuclear test.

南韓總統文在寅在他下週赴華府與美國總統唐納.川普舉行峰會前接受路透專訪時表示,若北韓試射1枚洲際彈道飛彈或進行第6次核試,應對其實施「強硬」制裁。

The comments mark the toughest warning yet by the liberal former human rights lawyer, who was elected in May. "I believe China is making efforts to stop North Korea from making additional provocations, yet there are no tangible results as of yet," Moon told Reuters at the Blue House.

這些評論為這位5月當選的自由派前人權律師迄今最強硬的警告。文在青瓦台向路透說,「我相信,中國正致力制止北韓做出更多挑釁,但至今沒有具體成果。」

"China is North Korea’s only ally and China is the country that provides the most economic assistance to North Korea," Moon said. "Without the assistance of China, sanctions won’t be effective at all."

文指出,「中國是北韓的唯一盟邦,中國也是提供北韓最多經濟援助的國家」,「沒有中國協助,制裁根本不會有效。」

“Maybe President Trump believes that there is more room for China to engage North Korea and it seems that he is urging China to do more. I can also sympathize with that message,” Moon said.

文提到,「也許川普總統認為,中國還有與北韓周旋的空間,他似乎正呼籲中國做出更多貢獻,我對那樣的訊息也有同感。」
