特朗普建议西班牙修墙挡移民_英语新闻

President Trump recommended building a wall across the Sahara to solve Europe’s migrant crisis, Spain’s foreign minister says.

西班牙外交部长何塞·博雷利表示,特朗普总统建议西班牙在撒哈拉沙漠上修建一堵墙以解决欧洲的移民危机。

Josep Borrell, also a former President of the European Parliament, disagreed with the strategy.

何塞·博雷利也是欧洲议会前总统,他不同意这一战略。

The comments came during a visit Mr Borrell made to the US at the end of June.

博雷利先生于6月底访问美国期间,特朗普对他提出了这个建议。

Mr Trump’s pledge to build a wall between the US and Mexico was one of his best-known election promises.

特朗普最著名的选举承诺之一,就是在美国和墨西哥之间修建隔离墙。

Mr Borrell recounted his conversation with the US president at a lunch event in Madrid this week, Spain’s foreign ministry confirmed to the BBC.

博雷利先生在本周在马德里举行的午餐会上分享了他与美国总统的谈话,西班牙外交部向BBC证实。

"The border with the Sahara cannot be bigger than our border with Mexico," Mr Borrell quoted Mr Trump as saying.

“你们与撒哈拉沙漠的边界不可能大过我们与墨西哥的边界,”博雷尔先生援引特朗普的话说。

The US-Mexico border is 1,954 miles (3,145 km) long. The Sahara desert stretches for 3,000 miles.

美墨边境长1954英里(3145公里)。撒哈拉沙漠绵延3000英里。

Spain has no sovereignty over the Sahara, but it does possess two small enclaves on the north African coast, Ceuta and Melilla, separated from Morocco by controversial wire fences.

西班牙对撒哈拉沙漠没有主权,但它确实拥有北非海岸的两个小飞地,休达和梅利利亚,用铁丝网与摩洛哥隔开,但这些铁丝网备受争议。

The enclaves have become magnets for African migrants seeking a better life in Europe and refugees fleeing persecution and conflict.

这些飞地吸引着那些寻求欧洲美好生活的非洲移民和逃离迫害以及冲突的难民。

Since January of this year, at least 35,000 undocumented migrants have arrived in Spain, the highest number received by any Mediterranean EU country.

自今年1月以来,至少有35000名无证移民抵达西班牙,使西班牙成为接收难民人数最高的地中海欧盟国家。

However, Germany - the most popular EU destination for migrants - has been registering more than 10,000 asylum-seekers a month this year.

然而,德国作为欧盟中最受欢迎的移民目的地,今年每月登记的寻求庇护者超过10000名。
