蒂勒森:期待前往伦敦美国新大使馆 Tillerson Hopes to Visit New Embassy in London

美国国务卿蒂勒森说,他期待前往伦敦的新美国大使馆。川普总统一星期前拒绝出席开馆仪式。

蒂勒森星期天将访问伦敦,开始他的8天欧洲之行。不过美国国务院发言人说,蒂勒森国务卿的访问计划中没有正式的剪彩仪式。

蒂勒森国务卿计划与英国领导人会谈,讨论美英两国对世界事务的共同关切。

川普总统上星期五取消了2月访问伦敦的计划,说他不想对搬迁美国驻英大使馆的“糟糕计划”表示支持。川普总统还说,大使馆搬迁计划是奥巴马行政当局同意的。事实上,出售原驻英大使馆房产的决定是在小布什总统执政期间做出的,据说主要是出于安全担心。

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says he hopes to visit the new U.S. embassy in London, a week after President Donald Trump refused to attend its opening.

Tillerson will be in London Sunday at the start of an eight day trip across Europe. But a State Department spokeswoman said no formal ribbon-cutting had been planned for Tillerson's visit.

Tillerson also plans to meet with British leaders and to discuss issues of mutual concern around the world.

Last Friday, Trump cancelled a visit to London in February, saying he did not want to lend his support to a "bad deal" on the embassy relocation, which he incorrectly claimed had been agreed by the Obama administration. The decision to sell the old embassy was actually taken during the George W. Bush administration and was reportedly driven by security concerns.
