南韓國防部舉行追悼會,紀念1950至1953年朝鮮戰爭的受難者,為這個造成朝鮮半島分裂六十年的戰爭留下記錄。

Defense Minister Kim Tae-young and the U.S. Forces Korea Commander Walter Sharp, along with military officers from the 21 countries who had supported the democratic nation during the war, attended the event at Seoul's War Memorial.

國防部長金泰榮和駐韓的美軍司令沃爾特夏普,以及來自21個曾在戰爭期間支持南韓的民主國家軍官們,參加了此次在首爾戰爭紀念碑的活動。

[Kim Tae-young, South Korean Defense Minister]:

"Sixty years ago when our country was in danger of perishing, many young people came to help us. Sixteen countries sent their young people and five countries sent a lot of support and aid to help us. We should not forget this."

[金泰榮,南韓國防部長說]:

“60年前,在我國處於亡國的危險時,許多年輕人來幫助我們。16個國家派出他們的年輕人,還有五個國家給予我們很大的支持和援助。我們不應忘記這一點。 “

U.S. commander, Walter Sharp, says the U.S. and South Korea should always be prepared against North Korea's provocations.

美軍指揮官沃爾特夏普說,美國和南韓應隨時對北韓的挑釁行為有所準備。

[Walter Sharp, U.S. Forces Korea Commander]:

"We honor the past sacrifices of our fallen heroes in battlelines by remaining prepared to deter future aggression and provocations. As a recent North Korean attack on the Cheonan reminds us, we must always remain strong and vigilant to ensure all these brave men and women fought for will be preserved for ourselves and for all of our future generations."

[沃爾特夏普,駐韓的美軍司令官說]:

“我們藉著仍會保持戒備以防止未來的侵略和挑釁,來表彰過去在戰場上犠牲的英雄們,。最近北韓襲擊天安艦事件提醒我們,我們必須保持強大及警戒,以確保這些英勇的男女戰士們,他們為我們和所有我們的後代奮戰的成果可以被保存。 “

Tensions on the Korean peninsula have escalated since South Korea accused the North of firing a torpedo at its Cheonan battleship in March, killing 46 sailors.

自三月份南韓指控北韓在對天安艦發射魚雷,造成46名船員死亡以來,朝鮮半島的緊張局勢就不斷升高。

The Korean War started June 25, 1950, when North Korean troops launched a surprise attack across the 38th parallel into South Korea.

朝鮮戰爭爆發於1950年6月25日,當時北韓軍隊突然發動攻擊,越過38度線進入南韓。

U.S.-led United Nations forces battled Chinese and Soviet-backed North Korea, in a war in which three million soldiers and civilians were killed, and five million became refugees.

美國領導的聯合國部隊與中國及有蘇聯支持的北韓作戰,這場戰爭,有300萬士兵和百姓死亡,500萬人成為難民。

Seoul's Defense Ministry said 21 countries sent around 2 million troops and military aid to the war and more than 140,000 of them were killed or wounded.

首爾國防部說,21個國家派遣近200萬軍隊和軍事援助參戰,超過14萬人傷亡。
