In a wide-ranging address to the U.N. General Assembly, U.S. President Barack Obama took aim at Iran -- a country that he said has failed to meet its responsibilities as a member of the international community.

在對聯合國大會發表演說上,美國總統歐巴馬把矛頭指向伊朗—一個他認為無法負起作為國際社會成員責任的國家。

[Barack Obama, U.S. President]:

"Now let me be clear once more: the United States and the international community seek a resolution to our differences with Iran, and the door remains open to diplomacy should Iran choose to walk through it. But the Iranian government must demonstrate a clear and credible commitment, and confirm to the world the peaceful intent of its nuclear program."

美國總統,歐巴馬說:“現在讓我再一次說清楚:美國及國際社會在我們與伊朗之間的差異中尋找一種解決方案,外交的大門隨時為伊朗打開。但是伊朗政府必須展現清楚且可信任的承諾,並且對世界證明其核子計劃的和平意圖。”

With the Israeli delegation absent from his speech because of a Jewish holiday, the President reaffirmed his commitment to concluding a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians - an agreement that many American Presidents have tried - but failed - to achieve.

以色列代表團因猶太假期而缺席了這場演說,歐巴馬總統重申他的承諾:達成以巴簽定最後的和平協定—一項美國歷任總統努力嘗試、卻無法達成的協定。

[Barack Obama, U.S. President]:

"This time, we should draw upon the teachings of tolerance that lie at the heart of three great religions that see Jerusalem's soil as sacred. This time we should reach for what's best within ourselves. If we do, when we come back here next year, we can have an agreement that will lead to a new member of the United Nations - an independent, sovereign state of Palestine, living in peace with Israel."

美國總統,歐巴馬說:“這次,我們應該引用三大宗教的教導核心─寬容,視耶路撒冷的土地為是神聖的。這一次我們應該達到在我們內在最好的。如果我們這麼做,當我們明年回到這裡,我們就能夠達成聯合國新成員的一項協議─ㄧ個與以色列和平共處的獨立主權國家巴勒斯坦。

Turning his attention to the world economy, President Obama said the world had been pulled back from the brink of depression in the wake of the global financial crisis.

轉到他對世界經濟的看法,歐巴馬總統說,世界已經從全球金融危機後瀕臨經濟蕭條的邊緣被拉回。

He also said the U.S. would support a process on climate change in which all major economies met their responsibilities to protect the planet.

他也表示,美國將會支持在氣候變遷的過程中,所有主要經濟體應負起保護地球的責任。
