CNN10分鐘新聞[翻譯]:也門和談雙方同意荷臺達停火 并將交換囚犯

發表時間:2019-01-09內容來源:VOA英語學習網

It starts in the Middle Eastern country of Yemen.

After more than three years of war there, the sides that are fighting have agreed to a ceasefire in Hodeida. That's just one city in Yemen but here's why this is significant. Hodeida is a port. It's held by the rebels who are fighting the Yemeni government. It's under siege by the forces that support that government and Hodeida is an entry point for 70 percent of the humanitarian aid that Yemen gets from other countries.

It needs it. In addition to the devastation caused by the war, the United Nations says that Yemen is the site of the world's worst famine in 100 years and 20 million people there are said to be hungry. The ceasefire's one of the agreements that was reached this past week in Sweden where the two sides fighting Yemen's war have been meeting. They've been having their first direct talks in more than two years. And along with the ceasefire in Hodeida, they agreed to exchange a number of prisoners and to try to reduce violence around another Yemeni city.

The civil war extends well beyond the nation's borders. Saudi Arabia supports Yemen's government. Iran supports the rebels who are fighting Yemen's government. The civilians who are caught in the crossfire are suffering.

今天首先來關注中東國家也門。

在也門戰事持續了三年多之后,交戰雙方同意在荷臺達停火。雖然只是在一個也門城市停火,但這同樣具有重要意義,下面我們來解釋一下原因。荷臺達是港口城市。該市由對抗也門政府的反對派控制。荷臺達目前被支持政府的力量圍困,其他國家為也門提供了人道主義援助,這些援助有70%要從荷臺達進入也門。

也門急需援助。聯合國表示,除了戰爭造成的破壞之外,也門還出現了100年來世界上最嚴重的饑荒,據悉該國有2000萬人生活在饑餓之中。也門交戰雙方一直在瑞典進行和談,而這一停火協議是雙方在上周達成的多項協議之一。這是雙方兩年多以來首次舉行直接會談。除了同意在荷臺達停火之外,他們還同意交換多名囚犯,并盡力減少也門另一個城市的暴力事件。

也門內戰擴大至該國邊界之外。沙特阿拉伯支持也門政府。伊朗支持對抗也門政府的反對派。而被困在戰火之中的平民則飽受痛苦。
