Some 30 foreign diplomats accepted the invitation to the US embassy’s opening ceremony in Jerusalem, scheduled for Sunday. The invitation was issued by the Israeli Foreign Ministry to diplomats from 86 foreign states. Four days before the ceremony, fewer than half of the recipients have RSVP’ed as "going."

以色列外交部向86个外国的外交官发出邀请,参加周日在耶路撒冷举行的美国大使馆开幕式,但是只有约30名外交官接受了的邀请。在仪式前四天,只有不到一半的人表示愿意去。

Twelve countries have already said they refused the invitation, either due to timing or other conflicts or out of principle, according to Haaretz. Among those to refuse are Australia, Germany, Ireland, Malta, Mexico, Portugal, Poland, Russia and Sweden.

有12个国家则因时间问题或事件敏感存在冲突等原因明确表达了“拒绝”,大部分国家甚至还没有回复。报道称,12个拒绝出席开馆仪式的国家包括:澳大利亚、德国、爱尔兰、马耳他、墨西哥、葡萄牙、波兰、俄罗斯以及瑞典等。

Interestingly, three states commonly perceived as opposing the embassy move — Hungary, the Czech Republic and Bulgaria — accepted the invitation. Two countries who are seen as friendly to Israeli government policy — Romania and Austria — have yet to announce their decision.

有趣的是,匈牙利、捷克和保加利亚这3个被认为会反对美国此次搬迁举动的国家却意外地接受了邀请,而罗马尼亚和奥地利这两个与以色列政府友好的国家,却至今还没有给出准信儿。

The Foreign Ministry event will be attended by US President Donald Trump’s daughter and adviser, Ivanka Trump; her husband, fellow presidential adviser Jared Kushner; US Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin and other elected US officials. On May 9, Hadashot TV reported that a number of EU states, including the UK, France and Germany, are going to boycott the event.

美国总统唐纳德特朗普的女儿和顾问伊万卡特朗普将出席此次外交部的活动,除此之外,还有成员包括特朗普女婿库什纳、财政部长姆努钦以及白宫高级顾问贾里德·库什纳和其他美国政府官员。5月9日,Hadashot TV报道说,包括英国,法国和德国在内的一些欧盟国家将抵制该活动。

The ceremony will take place the evening before the day the new US embassy officially opens. Some 800 guests have been invited to the opening, including "religious and business leaders, journalists, academics and government representatives from the United States. We have also invited several Israeli government representatives and political leaders to attend.

仪式将在新美国大使馆正式开幕的当天晚上举行。有800位嘉宾被邀请出席,包括来自美国的宗教和商界领袖、记者、学者和政府官员,美方也表示,同样邀请了以色列政府方面的代表出席。
