【看CP學英文】美國與中國的戰爭從貿易一路延伸至媒體,並且持續升溫中。《環球時報》總編輯胡錫進今早在微博發文聲稱,美方至今仍拒絕給大陸記者續簽簽證,因此,中國已做好所有在美記者被迫離境的最壞準備,並且絕對會「猛烈報復」。

From the trade war between the U.S. and China to the media war today, tension continues to rise between the two countries with Hu Xijin (胡錫進), Global Times (環球時報) editor-in-chief, posting on Weibo on Tuesday that as the U.S. still refuses to renew the visas of Chinese journalists, China is prepared for the worst and will definitely “retaliate fiercely” if any of its journalists in the U.S. are forced to leave the country.

胡錫進寫道,美國在驅逐60多名中國大陸記者、無差別將所有大陸駐美記者簽證縮短為3個月後,極可能透過不予簽證延期手段,使得更多大陸記者不得不離開美國。

According to the post, Hu wrote that after expelling more than 60 journalists from China and shortening their visas to three months, the U.S. is likely to drag out the process of issuing visas so those remaining journalists will have no choice but to leave or risk overstaying illegally.

目前距離簽證到期(8月6日)只剩兩天時間,雖在美的中國記者都有依程序申請,但仍無人獲得簽證延期,更有40多名記者至今甚至無接到辦理簽證延期的通知。

With only two days left before the visa expiration date on Aug. 6, Hu said that Chinese journalists in the U.S. who have followed the procedure have yet been granted a visa extension, and more than 40 journalists have not even been notified of the visa extension procedure.

胡錫進質疑「華盛頓這是要幹什麼?」,並認為美國最近對中國的諸多打壓不斷刷新人民對美國的下限,中國絕不會坐視不管。他也要求美國謹慎思考,美國也有大量記者派駐在中國及香港,倘若中美媒體戰進一步升級,受害者是誰,大家彼此心知肚明。

“What’s Washington doing?” questioned Hu in his post. He also said that the U.S. has recently been suppressing China in many ways and that China will not sit idly by as its people’s expectations of the U.S. continue to lower. 

Hu added that the U.S. has a large number of reporters stationed in China and Hong Kong. “if the media war between China and the U.S. escalates further, we all know who the victims will be,” he concluded.

最後,胡錫進呼籲美國駐華記者透過行動阻止美國的不理智行為。

Near the end of the lengthy post, Hu also called on American journalists in China to take action to stop the irrational behavior of the United States.
