中国与达尔富尔

卡内基中国透视 2007年08月01日 热点争鸣 OPINION AND DEBATE 中国与达尔富尔  Darfur and China 王雅平 2007年7月31日,联合国安理会一致通过1769号决议,决定向苏丹达尔富尔地区派遣大约两万六千人的联合国-非盟混合维和部队。这一决议核准了安南计划的第三阶段维和行动,在达尔富尔问题的解决上迈出了重要的一步。自2003年苏丹达尔富尔地区冲突愈演愈烈以来,国际社会对达尔富尔问题予以了突出的关注。中国政府由于其与苏丹政府之间的友好关系,也不断引来了国际社会众多的非议,甚至有某些个人、媒体以及非政府组织把2008年北京奥运会羞辱为“种族灭绝奥运会”,力图以此向中国政府施压以改变中国对苏丹的政策。本期《卡内基中国透视》采访了前白宫国家安全会议亚太资深主任、现任布鲁金斯学会中国项目主任贝德(Jeff Bader),卡内基国际和平基金会访问学者、《新共和》(The New Republic)的特约记者与《美国展望》(The American Prospect)的高级通讯员约书亚•科兰兹克(Joshua Kurlantzick),与总部设在华盛顿的非政府团体——拯救达尔富尔联盟(Save Darfur Coalition)组织的发言人艾伦•布鲁克斯-拉舒尔(Allyn Brooks-Lasure)。三人分别从不同的角度探讨了达尔富尔问题与中国在此问题上的立场。   For full article, click here.
