美国称军事途径不能解决乌克兰危机

2014-04-16    来源:新华网    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

U.S. says no military solution to Ukrainian crisis

The United States said on Monday that it saw no military solution to the Ukrainian crisis, even as tensions were running high in the eastern part of the country.

State Department spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki rejected suggestion of arms aid by the agency's counselor Thomas Shannon, saying Washington was focusing on its "economic and diplomatic efforts."

"We don't see a military solution to this crisis, and that hasn 't changed," Psaki told reporters at a regular news briefing. "Our focus is not on military assistance or a military solution."

White House spokesman Jay Carney also said the administration was not "actively considering lethal aid."

Shannon said in Berlin earlier in the day that the Obama administration was looking at arms supply to Ukraine "as an option " though he was not sure of the outcome.

Pro-Russia protesters, riding on a new wave of unrest that erupted in eastern Ukraine on April 6, took control of several government buildings in eastern Ukraine over the weekend and refused to heed Kiev's ultimatum to leave by Monday morning.

Ukraine's acting President Oleksandr Turchynov has vowed to launch a "large-scale anti-terrorist operation" against the armed militants, while Russia, which has massed troops on the border, has repeatedly warned Kiev against using force to restore order.

Both Psaki and Carney confirmed that John Brennan, director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, was in Kiev over the weekend.

"There were some claims that Director Brennan encouraged Ukrainian authorities to conduct tactical operations inside Ukraine," Psaki said. "Those are completely false."

Earlier in the day, U.S. President Barack Obama and his French counterpart Francois Hollande spoke over the phone of the " worsening situation" in eastern Ukraine, "where pro-Russian separatists, seemingly with support and coordination from Moscow, have intensified their campaign to undermine and destabilize the Ukrainian government," the White House said.

"The leaders underscored that Russia will face significant additional costs if it continues this behavior," the White House said in a readout of the phone talks.

Washington has threatened to target Russia's key sectors of economy like energy, banking and mining in response to its further moves against Ukraine.

It has suspended military cooperation and trade and investment talks with Russia, and slapped sanctions on a number of key Russian and Crimean officials as well as a Russian bank, in response to Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine last month.

The U.S. on Monday signed a one-billion-dollar loan guarantee for Ukraine, part of an aid package in support of the country's economic recovery.

U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden will travel to Kiev on April 22.

相关新闻:美国国务院发言人普萨基14日表示,乌克兰危机不能通过军事途径加以解决,美方仍把重点放在外交努力上。

针对美国国务院顾问托马斯·香农当天在柏林发表的有关美国考虑向乌克兰政府提供武器援助的说法,普萨基在例行新闻发布会上说,美方认为军事手段不能解决乌克兰危机的看法并未改变,“我们的重点不在军事援助或寻求军事解决”。

白宫发言人卡尼在例行新闻发布会上也表示,美国政府目前没有“积极考虑提供致命物资援助”问题。

普萨基和卡尼均证实,美国中央情报局局长布伦南上周末访问了乌克兰首都基辅。普萨基称,有关布伦南鼓励乌克兰当局在乌境内采取“战术行动”的说法“完全错误”。

白宫发表声明说,美国总统奥巴马当天通过电话与法国总统奥朗德讨论了乌克兰东部“日益恶化的局势”,指责亲俄罗斯分离主义分子似乎得到俄“支持与协调”,加紧了削弱和破坏乌克兰政府稳定的活动。两位领导人表示,俄罗斯如果继续此类行为,将面对“额外重大代价”。

美国国防部同日披露,俄罗斯一架没有武装的“苏-24”强击机12日在黑海12次抵近美国海军“唐纳德·库克”号导弹驱逐舰飞行,时间长约90分钟。俄方战机未对美方舰艇多次发出的“询问和警告”作出反应。美方称,俄方此举“具有挑衅性且违反职业道德标准”,不符合国际惯例和美俄相关协议。

俄罗斯上月接纳克里米亚和塞瓦斯托波尔以联邦主体身份加入俄联邦后,乌克兰东部3个州亲俄民众本月6日起举行大规模抗议集会,提出在乌克兰实行联邦制、加入俄罗斯等诉求,并冲击和占领了州政府大楼等权力机关。乌当局宣布自8日起开展“反恐行动”,在东部一些地区驱离或逮捕示威者。美国等西方国家批评乌克兰东部局势动荡与俄罗斯有关,俄方对此予以否认,并称这是“嫁祸于人”。(新华网)
