美国驻中华人民共和国大使骆家辉在大使官邸媒体见面会的讲话

2011年8月14日

 

Welcome to the U.S. Ambassador’s residence. Thank you all very much for coming here on a hot Sunday afternoon in Beijing – don’t worry, we have some refreshments waiting for you.

欢迎来到美国大使官邸。非常谢谢你们大家,在北京一个炎热的周日下午来到这里——不用担心,我们已经为你们准备了一些茶点。

 

Let me begin by saying how deeply honored I am to have this opportunity to serve the President and the people of the United States of America. My wife Mona and our children Emily, Dylan, and Madeline are all very excited to move here to Beijing to build new friendships between the people of the United States and China and to continue to expand our two countries’ growing cooperation on key bilateral and international issues.

首先,我深感荣幸能有这个机会为美利坚合众国的总统和人民服务。我的妻子莫纳和我们的孩子埃米利、迪伦和马迪林都很兴奋搬到北京,在美国和中国人们之间建立新的友谊,继续扩展我们两国在关键双边和国际事务上正在增长的合作。

 

The United States and China have a profoundly important and complex diplomatic and economic bilateral relationship – one with challenges, no question, but one which also holds great promise for expanded cooperation and collaboration. I look forward to working with the Chinese Government to fulfill that promise, but more importantly, to build the positive, cooperative, and comprehensive relationship to which President Obama and President Hu aspire.

美国和中国有着极其重要和复杂的外交和经济双边关系——这一关系有挑战,这是毫无疑问的,但也有扩展合作和协作的极大希望。我期盼与中国政府共同努力实现这种希望,但更重要的,创建欧巴马总统与胡主席均追求的积极、合作和全面的关系。

 

Our two countries have already had a busy year. President Hu had a successful state visit to the United States in January. That was followed by the third round of the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue in May. Secretary Gates also made an important visit to China in January, and Secretary Clinton met with State Councilor Dai in Shenzhen just a few weeks ago. And as you all know, next week, we will be welcoming Vice President Joe Biden, who will visit Beijing and Chengdu. The Vice President was one of the first U.S. senators to visit China back in 1979, and we look forward to welcoming him back.

我们两国已经度过了忙碌的一年。胡主席在一月份对美国进行了一次成功的国事访问。随后在五月,举行了第三轮美中战略和经济对话。一月份盖茨部长也对中国进行了一次重要访问,而且仅几星期前克林顿部长在深圳会晤了戴国务委员。正如你们大家所知,下周我们将欢迎乔•拜敦副总统,他将访问北京和成都。副总统是1979年访问中国的首批美国参议员之一,我们期待着欢迎他回来。

 

On a personal level, I am both humbled and honored to stand here before you as a child of Chinese immigrants representing America, the land of my birth, and the American values my family holds dear. I can only imagine just how proud my dad, Jimmy, who passed away in January, would be for his son to be the first Chinese-American to represent the United States in the land of his and my mother’s birth. My parents, my wife, our children – we all personally represent America and America’s promise as a land of freedom, equality, and opportunity. And it is that enduring promise and those values that I will represent in my official capacity serving the President and the American people as the United States ambassador to China.

在个人层面上,能作为中国移民的孩子代表美国——我出生的土地,以及我的家庭珍视的美国价值观,站在你们面前,我感到既谦卑又荣幸。我只能想象我在一月份过世的父亲,吉米,看到他的儿子成为在他和我母亲出生的土地上代表美国的第一位华裔美国人,会是多么骄傲。我的父母,我的妻子,我们的孩子——我们本人都直接代表美国以及美国作为自由、平等和机会之土地的希望。我,以官方身份,作为服务于总统和美国人民的美国驻华大使,将代表的正是这永久希望和这些价值观。

 

Our family is embarking on an adventure and a challenge, and we are eager to re-connect with our old Chinese friends and make many more new ones. Thank you very much for joining us today.

我们的家庭正在开始一次冒险和挑战,我们渴望能重新联系我们的中国老朋友以及结识更多新朋友。非常感谢你们今天能来。
