【看英文中國郵報學英文】捷克首都布拉格與台北市於當地時間13日在布拉格市政廳簽署姐妹市協議,而三個月前,捷克才與北京解除姐妹市關係,增添緊張關係。

The Czech capital, Prague, on Monday signed a partnership agreement with the capital of Taiwan, Taipei – three months after canceling a similar deal with Beijing and angering the Chinese government.

2016年布拉格與北京敲定姐妹市協議,然而,因市府不接受「一個中國」政策條款,捷克於去年十月解除姐妹市關係。

The disagreement over Beijing began after the Chinese insisted on having a clause in the deal stating that Prague supports the one-China principle, which does not recognize Taiwan.

中國因而取消數個來自布拉格的音樂會以及交響樂巡迴演出,以此表示對布拉格與台北簽訂的姐妹市協議的抗議。

In reaction to Prague’s decision to ink a deal with Taipei, China canceled the tours of several Prague classical music ensembles and orchestras.

國共內戰爆發,1949年國民政府遷台,而北京仍認為台灣是其部分領土。

Taiwan split from mainland China amid a civil war in 1949, but Beijing considers the self-ruled island part of its territory.

儘管布拉格市長賀瑞普不承認一中政策,捷克政府呼籲強化中國與捷克的關係,承認一中政策。

While Prague authorities have resisted the one-China principle, the Czech government recognizes it.

姐妹市協議是由布拉格市長 Zdenek Hrib與台北市長柯文哲簽訂。

The deal between Prague and Taipei was signed by the mayors of the two cities, Zdenek Hrib and Ko Wen-je.

布拉格市長賀瑞普(Zdeněk Hřib)認為姊妹市對雙方皆「最為有利」,因為兩方擁有「共同民主價值,且尊重基本人權和文化自由。」

Hrib said the cities share “the democratic values, the respect to basic human rights and cultural freedoms” and therefore can inspire each other.

賀瑞普說道,協議主要強調經濟、貿易和文化上的合作,不包含政治。

He said the deal focuses on economic, trade and cultural cooperation but not on politics.

姐妹市協議包括布拉格和台北動物園的合作計畫,以及觀光和資訊科技上的合作。

The deal is accompanied by agreements for cooperation between the Prague and Taipei zoos as well as in tourism and information technology.
