Afghanistan’s New Leader

Hamid Karzai has been sworn-in as the leader of Afghanistan’s interim1 government. The inauguration2 was hailed as a momentous3 day for the war-shattered country and the international community.

The inauguration of interim-leader Hamid Karzai and 29 members of his cabinet took place in the capital Kabul. Among the 2,000 people present for the historic occasion were Afghan tribal4 leaders, representatives from every province in the country and foreign guests and journalists. The interim leader appealed to 1)reconciliation5 and international help to rebuild Afghanistan. Mr. Karzai also vowed6 to end more than two decades of bloodshed in the war-2)ravaged country. The United Nations Special Envoy8 to Afghanistan who was attending the ceremony described the swearing in as a momentous day for the war-torn nation.

Lakhdar Brahimi said the inauguration of the interim administration marks the end of a long-dark night of conflict and the dawn of peace. He admitted that the agreement on the interim government was far from perfect but it had been widely welcomed by the Afghan people and supported by the international community. Mr. Karzai’s government will be in power for six months before a council of tribal leaders takes over for a year and a half to prepare for general elections.

 

India Pakistan Relationship

India says it will try its best to avoid a war with Pakistan over last week’s attacks on Parliament in New Delhi. But the Indian government also says its patience is at an end and it will have to deal with terrorists on its own.

Addressing the upper house of Parliament, the Indian Prime Minister said every effort must be made to prevent a war with Pakistan over the suspected terrorist attack on the heart of the Indian government. But Atal Behari Vajpayee said his administration had reached the 3)pinnacle9 of tolerance10 and could not rely on international help to fight domestic terrorism, which he blamed on Pakistan.

Earlier Pakistan challenged India to back up its accusations11 with concrete proof and warned against any retaliation12. Fourteen people were killed when five gunmen launched a daring suicide raid on the Indian Parliament last week. New Delhi said the attackers, who were among the casualties were Kashmiri 4)separatists sponsored by Pakistan. The two 5)arch rivals traded fire over the disputed Kashmir border overnight for the first time since the attack.

 

China and Japan’s Trade Relationship

China and Japan have resolved the damaging eight-month trade round. The last minute deal was struck in brief talks in Beijing. Foreign Trade Minister Shi Guangsheng led a high-powered 6)Japanese delegation13 in Beijing for talks on ending a 7)bruising eight-month trade round.

After a one hour discussion, the two sides struck a last-minute deal. The trade round erupted in April when Tokyo imposed 8)curbs on three Chinese agricultural products. The move aimed at protecting Japanese farmers. Beijing retaliated15 two months later by imposing16 100 percent 9)punitive17 10)tariffs19 on imports of Japanese motor vehicles, air-conditioners and mobile phones. The temporary restrictions20 expired last month but a deadline for Tokyo to decide on the measures was to have ended today after which they were due to be reimposed for four years. The two sides agreed the restrictions would not be reimposed and China would also end its retaliatory21 tariffs.

 

NBA Updates

In the NBA, the Memphis Grizzlies22 are celebrating their first ever win in New York. The Grizzlies relied on two 11)rookies to steer23 them to victory.

Latrell Sprewell was hoping to put an end to the New York Knicks’ poor run at Madison Square Garden. But Shane Battier had other ideas. He gave the Grizzlies an early 14-8 lead and the rookie added another two of his 21 points in the second period. Jason Williams added 11 points for Memphis while 21 year-old Spanish rookie Pau Gasol scored 14. Allan Houston responded with three of his 25 points to tie the game at 88 points apiece. Battier 12)nailed a ten-meter shot with less than 10 seconds left. The Knicks were unable to get the ball in the 13)hoop24 after that and Memphis held on for a 90 to 88 win handing the Knicks their third defeat in a row at home.

14、新闻报道

 

阿富汗的新首领

哈米德·卡尔扎伊已宣誓成为阿富汗临时政府的首领。在欢呼声中,卡尔扎伊举行典礼就职成为这个因为战争而破碎的国家和国际社团的首领。

卡尔扎伊和二十九名过渡时期的内阁成员在首都卡布尔宣誓就职。在见证这一历史时刻的两千人中有阿富汗的部落长老、各省代表与外国嘉宾和记者。卡尔扎伊呼吁和解以及国际援助重建阿富汗。同时卡尔扎伊也发誓结束这个国家二十多年来所遭受的战争蹂躏。联合国阿富汗特使也参加了仪式,他认为这一天对饱受战争之苦的阿富汗来说是具有重要意义的一天。

联合国阿富汗特使拉克达·布拉希米说,临时政府的建立标志着长期争战的黑暗时期的结束以及和平曙光的到来。他承认,成立临时政府的协议还远不够完善,但它受到了广大阿富汗人民的欢迎,并受到国际舆论的支持。卡尔扎伊临时政府将试行六个月,然后由部落长老成立的政务会接管一年半,再进行大选。

 

印巴关系恶化

上周新德里的议会遇袭后,印度称将竭力避免与巴基斯坦发生战争。但同时印度也指出,己方的忍耐已达到了极限,并将独自对抗恐怖分子。

印度总理在对议会上议院的讲话中指出,印度政府中央地带遭受被疑为恐怖分子的袭击,必须尽一切可能阻止与巴基斯坦发生战争。但印度总理瓦杰帕依说,政府的忍耐已达到最高点,并无法依靠国际援助来解决国内的恐怖活动,即指责巴基斯坦。

早一段时间巴基斯坦指责印度应拿出充足的证据,并警告印度不要采取报复行动。上周,五名持枪分子对印度议会采取了自杀性袭击,有十四人死亡。印度称,伤亡的袭击者是受巴基斯坦支持的克什米尔独立派。自从袭击事件以来,这两股主要敌对势力就开始在有争议的克什米尔边境彻夜进行军火买卖。

 

中日贸易关系

中国和日本完成了为期八个月的受挫的贸易谈判。最后一笔交易在北京的主要谈判中达成。外经贸部长石广生在北京率领一支精干的中国代表团,结束这轮受挫的八个月的贸易谈判。

经过一小时的讨论,双方在最后一分钟达成一笔交易。四月,日本对中国三项农产品的进口进行限制,于是双方开始了贸易谈判。这一举措旨在保护日本农民。作为报复,两个月后北京对从日本进口的汽车、空调和手机征收了百分之百的惩罚性关税。上个月临时限制到期,日本作出最后决定的最后期限今天也到期,这之后这些措施就要实行四年。双方达成协议,日本不再实行进口限制,中国也不再征收报复性关税。

 

NBA赛况

NBA篮球赛赛况,孟斐斯灰熊队庆祝他们在纽约的首次胜利。灰熊队这次完全是依靠两名新手来达到胜利的。

拉特尔·斯普里威尔希望扭转纽约尼克斯队在麦迪逊广场花园的不利战绩,但灰熊队的沙恩·巴蒂埃尔却打破了他的希望。这名新手一开始便使灰熊队以14∶8的比分保持领先,然后又在第二回合添了两分,他总共拿了二十一分。贾森·威廉姆斯为孟斐斯队拿了十一分,二十一岁的西班牙新手波·加斯尔则拿了十四分。尼克斯队的阿伦·休斯顿共拿了二十五分,其中以一个三分球将比分拉至88平。在比赛还剩最后不到十秒的时候,巴蒂埃尔一个十米远投。这之后尼克斯队再也没有进球。这样,孟斐斯以90∶88胜出,而尼克斯则主场作战连续第三次失利。
