GATES DENIES SEEING INDIA AS MILITARY ‘HEDGE' AGAINST CHINA

Robert Gates, the US defence secretary, denied yesterday that US efforts to boost military relations with India were aimed at creating a “hedge” strategy against the rise of China.
美国国防部长罗伯特•盖茨(Robert Gates)昨日否认,美国努力加强与印度军事关系,是为了构建一种针对中国崛起的“对冲”战略。

“I don't see our improving military relationship in this region in the context of any other country, including China,” said Mr Gates.
盖茨表示:“我不认为,我们改善在这一地区的军事关系,与包括中国在内的其它任何国家有关。”

Speaking to reporters in Delhi, Mr Gates rejected suggestions that efforts to improve relations with other militaries in the Asia-Pacific region were aimed at China. In the case of India, Mr Gates said the Pentagon wanted to bolster the ability of the US and Indian militaries to work together on issues such as piracy, terrorism, and providing disaster relief.
盖茨在德里向记者发表讲话时,否认了美国努力改善与亚太地区其它国家的军事关系是针对中国的说法。盖茨表示,就印度而言,五角大楼是希望提高美国和印度军方在打击海盗、恐怖主义及提供灾难救援等方面的合作能力。

“When you look at the kinds of activities that we are engaged in and the kind of exercises that we conduct . . . these expanding relationships don't necessarily have to be directed against anybody,” said Mr Gates. “They are a set of bilateral relationships that are aimed at improving our co-ordination and the closeness of our relationships for a variety of reasons.”
“如果你研究一下我们所从事的活动和我们进行的演习……(你会发现)这些改善关系的做法不一定非要针对任何人,”盖茨表示,“这一系列双边关系的目的是加强我们的合作,并密切我们之间的关系,这出于多种原因。”

The Pentagon chief arrived in Delhi from Jakarta where he offered the Indonesian military help with its modernisation programme. He also visited Canberra amid concerns that Australia's increasing economic dependence on China could complicate security relations with the US.
盖茨在抵达德里前访问了雅加达,为印尼的现代化计划提供了军事帮助。他还访问了堪培拉,值此之际,人们担心澳大利亚对中国的经济依赖程度不断上升,可能会令其与美国的安全关系复杂化。

One senior Pentagon official travelling with Mr Gates denied that India was in the middle of a “tug of war” between the US and China. But he suggested the US was attempting to bolster relations with Asian countries to counter China.
一位随同盖茨出访的五角大楼高层官员否认,印度处于中美“角力”的中心。但他暗示,美国试图加强与亚洲国家的关系,以反制中国。
