20日上午,美国总统布什在白宫南草坪为到访的中国国家主席胡***举行隆重欢迎仪式,不过欢迎仪式一度被一名抗议者打断数分钟。白宫国家安全顾问最新透露说:随后在椭圆办公室举行的会晤中,布什对胡***说,这是不幸的,“我对发生此事表示歉意”,胡***谦和地接受了布什道歉。

美东时间4月20日下午5时20分,白宫国家安全顾问哈德利在接受美国有线新闻网独家采访时介绍了欢迎仪式上出现的抗议事件,哈德利表示,这只是一起意外的抗议事件,布什总统已在随后的会晤中向胡***主席表示了歉意,中国领导人则谦和(gracious)的接受了道歉。

在美国国家安全委员会负责亚洲事务的高级官员威尔德(Dennis Wilder)向美联社透露说,在欢迎仪式出现抗议事件后,布什总统随后在椭圆办公室与胡***主席举行会晤时提到了这一事件,“他只是说,这是不幸的,我对发生此事表示道歉(I'm soory it happened)。”威尔德说,胡***则通情达理地接受了布什的道歉。

威尔德介绍说,接着两位领导人开始了他们的会谈,在随后进行的几个小时的会晤中,都没有再提到欢迎仪式上出现的抗议事件。在白宫举行的午宴上,胡***与布什并肩而坐,这与传统的分桌而坐的外交礼仪有些“出入”。

美联社指出,中国领导人把象征性和礼节放在很重要的位置,为了胡***的到访,白宫官员与中方官员已就每一个细节都进行了精心的准备。威尔德表示:“如果中国人因此(抗议事件)而责怪我们,我将会感到非常意外。”

美国特工局确认,在欢迎仪式上站在主席台对面摄影记者台上向布什和胡***呼喊的抗议者,是47岁的王文仪(Wenyi Wang)。特工局发言人麦克金(Jim Mackin)说,这名抗议者已被指控犯有妨碍治安行为(disorderly conduct),同时也在考虑对其提出恐吓或扰乱外交官员的指控。

麦克金介绍说,王文仪使用一张临时白宫通行证进入白宫的,并已接受所有适当的安全检查。美联社报导说,据大纪元时报发言人格雷戈利(Stephen Gregory)介绍,王文仪已通过该报获得一张记者证。格雷戈利确认王文仪是一名病理学医生,也是一名法轮功学员,来自纽约。

美联社说,当胡***在欢迎仪式上发表讲话时,王文仪站在摄影记者台用英语和汉语冲着主席台高喊:“布什总统,阻止他杀人”,“布什总统,阻止他迫害法轮功”。

这时,布什倾过身小声对胡***说:“You're OK”,暗示中国领导人应该完成他的讲话。当抗议者开始大声喊叫时,胡***曾停顿片刻,随后又接着发表他的开场讲话。

美联社在与中国驻美国大使馆一名发言人进行接触时,这名发言人表示他目前太忙,无法就此事发表评论。

大纪元时报发言人格雷戈利则表示,“我们期望她云扮演一名记者,我们不希望她去□。我们没有人知道王医生想这样做。”

  Heckler prompts Bush apology

  From correspondents in Washington

  April 21, 2006

  A HECKLER from the Falun Gong spiritual movement, who entered White House grounds as a reporter, interrupted a formal arrival ceremony for Chinese President ^^ today, prompting President George W. Bush to apologise to his guest.

  After being welcomed by Mr Bush, the Chinese president was just beginning his response when a woman, who had been allowed into the press section, started shouting.

  She was escorted away by a uniformed US guard.

  "President Hu, your days are numbered. President Bush, make him stop persecuting Falun Gong," the woman yelled.

  US officials later identified her as Wang Wenyi, 47, a reporter with The Epoch Times, an English-language publication strongly supportive of the meditation movement that is banned in China.

  "This was unfortunate and I'm sorry this happened," Mr Bush told Mr Hu, according to Dennis Wilder, a senior official with the National Security Council.

  The Secret Service charged Ms Wang with disorderly conduct under local statutes.

  The US Attorney's office was weighing federal charges of "willing intimidation or disruption of a foreign official", said Secret Service spokesman Eric Zahren.

  Outside the White House, hundreds of yellow-clad Falun Gong disciples, Taiwanese nationalists, and Tibetan youth group members demonstrated against Mr Hu and his government.

  The protesters denounced China's human rights record, its missile build-up near Taiwan and its 55-year-long rule over the Himalayan Buddhist region of Tibet.

  "Communist Party = Tyranny + Lies", read a yellow banner, carried by one female member of Falun Gong, which China outlawed and brutally crushed in 1999.

  "Taiwan is not a part of China," read a placard hoisted by one of around 300 Taiwan activists, who reject China's claim of sovereignty over the island. Tibetans, mostly US-based students, called for independence for their homeland.

  A US official said Mr Hu's team was probably offended by the incident.

  "The hardliners on Hu's team are going to ask, why did it take so long for us to pick her up. It is not a good thing," he said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

  Mr Zahren of the Secret Service said the woman had passed through "all appropriate levels of security", including a metal detector. She was allowed into the event under a temporary press pass.

  Falun Gong, which thrives overseas despite being largely stamped out in China, alleges that government persecution of the group includes a vast system of concentration camps, where doctors harvest inmates' organs for transplants.

  China has vehemently denied this, but a UN investigator is examining the allegation.

  In remarks at Mr Hu's arrival ceremony, Mr Bush did not mention Falun Gong, but he said he would discuss human rights.

  He urged Mr Hu to allow "the Chinese people the freedom to assemble, to speak freely and to worship".

We donot know what spur her to do that but it's natural in the society of US; from this point, we can know both sides of coin.
