(土耳其向敘利亞發動進攻)

The British government has refused to join its allies in halting arms sales to Turkey over the country’s military operation against Kurdish forces in Syria.

英國政府已經拒絕加入其盟友因為土耳其在敘利亞對庫爾德武裝采取軍事行動而共同停止向土耳其出售武器的行列。

EU foreign ministers unanimously agreed on Monday to “condemn” Turkey’s military action, arguing that it “seriously undermines the stability and the security of the whole region” and was harming civilians.

歐盟外長周一一致同意“譴責”土耳其的軍事行動,稱其“嚴重破壞了整個地區的穩定和安全”,并傷害了平民。

But the bloc stopped short of agreeing to an EU-wide arms embargo against Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government, instead issuing a relatively toothless pledge for “strong” arms export control on a country-by-country basis.

但歐盟沒有同意在整個歐盟范圍內對雷杰普·塔伊普·埃爾多安政府實施武器禁運,而是發出了一份相對沒有約束力的承諾,要求依據每個國家的具體情況實施“強有力”的武器出口管制。



Liberal Democrat MEP Irina Von Wiese, a member of the European parliament’s foreign affairs committee told The Independent: “The UK is increasingly out of step with the rest of the EU. Instead of trying to weaken a strong EU response to Turkey’s incursion into northeast Syria and murderous attack on the Kurds, UK ministers should be implementing a ban on arms exports and condemning Turkey’s actions, which risk reviving Isis and rewarding Russia.”

歐洲議會外交事務委員會成員、自由民主黨歐洲議會議員伊琳娜·馮·威斯告訴《獨立報》:“英國與歐盟其他國家的步調越來越不一致。英國部長們不應試圖削弱歐盟對土耳其入侵敘利亞東北部、對庫爾德人進行血腥襲擊的強硬回應,而應一道實施武器出口禁令,并譴責土耳其的行動,因為這可能會有讓ISIS復活的危險,并讓俄羅斯得到好處。”

In an agreed joint statement, EU foreign ministers said: “The EU recalls the decision taken by some member states to immediately halt arms exports licensing to Turkey.

在一份達成一致的聯合聲明中,歐盟外長表示:“歐盟重提一些成員國立即停止向土耳其出口武器的決定。

“Member states commit to strong national positions regarding their arms export policy to Turkey on the basis of the provision of the common position 2008/944/CFSP on arms export control, including the strict application of criteria 4 on regional stability.

“各成員國承諾根據《2008/944/CFSP軍品出口管制共同立場》的規定,包括嚴格適用有關地區穩定的標準,就其對土耳其的武器出口政策采取強硬的國家立場。

“The relevant council working group will meet later this week to coordinate and review the Member states’ positions on this matter.”

“安理會有關工作組將于本周晚些時候舉行會議,以協調和審查成員國在這個問題上的立場。”



Turkey views the Syrian Kurdish groups as a threat because of their lixs with Kurdish separatists in eastern Turkey. The autonomous region in Syria has enjoyed relative stability with a multi-ethnic government, and its leaders accuse Turkey of trying to ethnically cleanse the area of Kurds.

土耳其認為敘利亞庫爾德組織是一個威脅,因為他們與土耳其東部的庫爾德分裂分子有聯系。敘利亞自治區在一個多民族政府的治下相對穩定,其領導人指責土耳其試圖在種族上清洗該地區的庫爾德人。
