14.Speech by Mohamed Elbarade14.国际原子能机构干事巴拉迪的演讲Fifteen years ago, when the Cold War ended, many of us hoped for a new world order to emerge. A world order rooted in human solidarity, a world order that would be equitable, inclusive and effective.十五年前,冷战结束时,我们都盼望一个新的世界秩序的出现。一个以人类团结为基础的、公平的、广泛的、有效的世界秩序。But today we are nowhere near that goal. We may have tom down the walls between East and West, but we have yet to build the bridges between North and South, the rich and the poor.但是今天,我们却远不及这一目标。我们可能已经拆毁了东西方之间的墙,但是我们却必须架起南与北,贫与富之间的桥梁。Consider our development aid record. Last year, the nations of the world spent over trillion on armaments. But we contributed less than 10 percent of that amount, a mere billion, as official development assistance to the developing parts of the world, where 850 million people suffer from hunger.看看我们的发展援助记录。去年,世界各国在武器装备上花费多达一千亿美元。但是我们却只贡献了不到百分之十,仅仅800亿美元,作为官方发展援助发展中国家,在那里8.5亿人在遭受饥饿。My friend James Morris heads the World Food Programme, whose task is to feed the hungry. He recently told me, ;If I could have just I percent of the money spent on global armaments, no one in this world would go to bed hungry.;我的朋友詹姆斯·英里斯,世界粮食计划署的负责人,他的任务是给饥饿的人提供食物。他最近告诉我“如果我能有世界花费在武器上的钱的百分之一,这个世界上就不会有人饿着肚子睡觉了。”It should not be a surprise then that poverty continues to breed conflict. Of the 13 million deaths due to armed conflict in the last ten years, 9 million occurred in sub-Saharan Africa, where the poorest of the poor live.那样的话贫穷继续滋生冲突就不足为奇了。在过去的十年中,1,300万武装冲突造成的死亡,有900万发生在撒哈拉以南之非洲地区,也就是最穷的人生活的地方。Consider also our approach to the sanctity and value of human life. In the aftermath of the September 2001 terrorist attacks in the ed States, we all grieved deeply, and expressed outrage at this heinous crime and rightly so. But many people today are unaware that, as the result of civil war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, 3.8 million people have lost their lives since 1998.再看看我们对待人类尊严与价值的方式。在美国2001年 9.11恐怖袭击时间发生之后,我们都陷入沉重的悲痛之中,对这种穷凶极恶的罪行感到愤怒。但是今天许多人并没有意识到,由于刚果民主共和国的内战,1998年至今,380万人已经失去了他们的生命。Are we to conclude that our priorities are skewed, and our approaches uneven?我们将由此断定我们的权力被歪曲,我们的方式不公平吗?201704/503850

Good evening. Thank you, Professor Lin. Its great to be here today. Beida has an incredible history and Im sure next year, as you celebrate your 120th-year anniversary, youll get to look back on the incredible contributions that you have made to this country. Ive been coming to China since the early 1990s, initially as part of my work at Microsoft. It was ten years ago that I was privileged to be named an honorary trustee here at Beida. I remember what a great time I had in 2008 when I was here watching the Olympic table tennis semi-finals between China and South Korea. As Im sure you remember, China took the gold medal in every category – mens singles, womens singles, mens and womens teams event. That was on top of two silvers and two bronze medals. For someone whos a big table tennis fan, that was pretty incredible to witness. And that highlights in one way, what incredible potential China has. China is on a quest for excellence, a quest not only to improve itself but to contribute to the whole world. As Chinas economy is maturing, its making bold and difficult decisions on things like energy and pollution. And its assuming a greater role in critical issues like climate and development. And this matters now more than ever as the world is navigating a time of change and uncertainty. In some rich countries, there is skepticism about globalization. The results of the U.S. presidential election and the Brexit vote in the UK, both seem to underscore a rise of turning inward on issues like migration, security, and perhaps even global development. Its great to see China stepping up to engage even more with other countries. It is greatly equipped to do so. No other country has accomplished what China has achieved in the last few decades – breaking the relentless cycle of poverty and disease for hundreds of millions of people while modernizing its economy at a scale and speed unprecedented in human history. Although no one is expecting China to fill a gap in development aid from wealthy countries, it has made a very smart commitment to triple its commitment to African development. China has long understood that helping other countries lift themselves out of poverty creates a stable and secure world for people everywhere. And by encouraging investment through innovative financing mechanisms like the China-Africa Development Fund, China is strengthening not only Africas economic capacity, but also, over time, the markets for Chinese goods. Its great to see President Xis commitment to eliminate extreme poverty here in China by 2020. China did a great job of lifting millions out of poverty. But progress has been uneven. Forty-three million people still live in extreme poverty. Our foundation looks forward to a new partnership with China that will focus on innovative ideas to bring this number down to zero – working on nutrition, healthcare in rural areas, and also finding ways to increase financial services for the poor. Of course, China isnt not only striving to reach new heights here at home. Its using its own experience fighting poverty and disease to help other countries tackle similar challenges. When I was in Beijing a few years ago, Vice Premier Wang Yang said something that stayed with me. He said: ;Africa today is our yesterday.; Now, China is using the lessons its learned to usher in a new tomorrow for Africa, too. This is a pretty incredible time to be a young person in China. Your generations entrance into the workforce will coincide with your countrys rise as a center of global progress and innovation. The worlds eyes are on China. . .and as a new generation comes of age, the worlds eyes are specifically on all of you. So, I want to spend the rest of my comments focusing on four areas where I think there are exciting opportunities to use your education, your passion, and opportunities to unlock more amazing progress – for both China and for the world. Specifically, health, agriculture, energy, and technology. First, health. When my wife and I started the Gates foundation 17 years ago, we asked ourselves: how can we use our financial resources to make the biggest impact? It didnt take long to realize that improving health deserved to be at the top of the list.201704/503581

President Trump: Thank you very much, everybody, for being here today. It is with great pride, very great pride, that I say these words to you right now: Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Welcome to the White House. I want to congratulate you, Jeff, your wife Mary, and your entire family. Jeff Sessions has been a federal prosecutor at the highest level and at the most respected level, a state attorney general, and then a U.S. senator for two decades. He has devoted his life to the cause of justice and believes deeply that all people are equals in the eyes of the law – and very importantly for Jeff and for so many of us, also in the eyes of God. Hes a man of integrity, a man of principle, and a man of total, utter resolve. You just got a little witnessing of that. That resolve is what we need right now. America faces many challenges. We face the menace of rising crime and the threat of deadly terror. And its not getting better, but it will get better very soon. Its going to get a lot better. These dangerous times require a determined attorney general, which is what Jeff is. Jeff understands that the job of attorney general is to serve and protect the people of the ed States, and that is exactly what he will do, and do better than anybody else can. Hes trained better for it than anybody else. The level of respect that he has throughout this country as a former prosecutor, not even to mention being a long-time U.S. senator, is absolutely incredible. He will be a great protector of the people. Im signing three executive actions today designed to restore safety in America. These executive actions continue to deliver on my campaign promises. First, Im directing Department of Justice and Homeland Security to undertake all necessary and lawful action to break the back of the criminal cartels that have sp across our nation and are destroying the blood of our youth and other people, many other people. Secondly, Im directing Department of Justice to form a task force on reducing violent crime in America. And thirdly, Im directing the Department of Justice to implement a plan to stop crime and crimes of violence against law enforcement officers. Its a shame whats been happening to our great, truly great law enforcement officers. Thats going to stop as of today. Todays ceremony should be seen as a clear message to the gang members and drug dealers terrorizing innocent people. Your day is over. A new era of justice begins, and it begins right now. I want to again thank and congratulate Mary and our new Attorney General, Jeff Sessions. I wish you Gods wisdom and blessings in your journey. Mr. Vice President, would you please conduct the swearing-in? Thank you. Thank you very much for being here, everybody. Attorney General Sessions: Mr. President, thank you for this great honor. Its something I never expected would happen in my life, but I do love the Department of Justice. I care about its traditions and its heritage. I had 15 years in that great department, and the honor to lead it now is something that I do not have words to express effectively. There are a lot of things we need to do. First, we need to value and support and encourage the fabulous people who work there. Ive worked with them over the years. I know how good they are, and their talents need to be directed at this nations benefit in a lot of different ways. We have a crime problem. I wish the blip – I wish the rise that we are seeing in crime in America today were some sort of aberration or a blip. My best judgement, having been involved in criminal law enforcement for many years is that this is a dangerous, permanent trend that places the health and safety of the American people at risk. We will deploy the talents and abilities of the Department of Justice in the most effective way possible to confront this rise in crime and to protect the people of our country. We have an increased threat, since I was a ed States attorney, from terrorism. Mr. President, youve spoken firmly on that. Youve led this nation to say were going to respond effectively to the threat of terrorism, and you can count on your Department of Justice to do so in an effective way. And youve said something that I believe and I think the American people believe – that we need a lawful system of immigration; one that serves the interests of the people of the ed States. Thats not wrong, thats not immoral, thats not indecent. We admit a million people a year plus, who lawfully, and we need to end this lawlessness that threatens the public safety, pulls down wages of working Americans. It is an honor beyond words to serve under you and your leadership. Youre putting together a great Cabinet, which is just a thrill for me to have the opportunity to join. And I look forward to making sure that every ounce of strength I have and that the people of the Department of Justice have is going to be focused on preserving and protecting the Constitution and the safety of this country. We will defend the laws of this country as passed by Congress. We will defend the lawful orders of the President of the ed States with vigor and determination. Thank you all for being here, I see a lot of good friends, and may God bless all our efforts. Thank you.201703/496051
