US Defence SecretaryChuck Hagel has urged Japan to improve relations with neighbouring countriesafter Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's visit to a controversial war shrine, anAmerican official has said. Abe enraged China and South Korea when on December26 he made his first visit as premier to Yasukuni shrine, which honours Japan'swar dead including several high-level officials executed for war crimes afterWorld War II.

据美国官员透露,在日本首相安倍拜社之后,美国国防部长查克·哈格尔随即向日本致电,要求后者提升它与两个邻国——中国与韩国的关系。靖国神社供奉了数位在二战后以战犯身份被处决的高级官员,日本首相安倍于12月26日首次以首相身份参拜了神社,此举令中韩大为光火。

"Secretary Hagelunderscored the importance of Japan taking steps to improve relations with itsneighbours, and to promote cooperation in advancing the shared goals ofregional peace and stability," Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said ina statement posted on the US Defence Department website late Saturday.

“国防部长强调了日本采取措施改善与邻国关系和促进合作的重要性,从而推动实现地区和平稳定这一共同目标。”五角大楼新闻秘书约翰·卡比在声明中说到。这篇声明周六发布于美国国防部官网上。

The comments wereissued after telephone talks between Hagel and Japanese Defence MinisterItsunori Onodera.

这篇声明发表于国防部长查克·哈格尔致电日本防卫大臣小野寺五典之后。

China and other Asiancountries say the shrine serves as a reminder of Japan's 20th centuryaggression, and is a source of bitterness between Japan and its neighbours andAbe's visit also sparked criticism from Washington.

中国和其他亚洲国家都表示,参拜靖国神社让人想起日本20世纪侵略行为。一直以来,靖国神社常常是日本与其邻国发生龃龉的原因,而安倍拜访靖国神社的举动更招来了美国的批评。

During theirconversation late Saturday, Onodera sought Hagel's understanding over thevisit, telling his counterpart that the prime minister had renewed Japan'spledge that it must never wage war again, Kyodo News said citing Japaneseofficials.

Hagel had alsothanked the Japanese government for its efforts in securing approval fromOkinawa's governor to move towards relocating a US Marine Corps air base on theisland, Kirby said.

另据共同社报道,一些日本官员曾表示,在二人在周六的谈话中,小野寺五典曾试图让哈格尔理解安倍的举动。小野寺五典告诉哈格尔,首相虽然拜访了靖国神社,但安倍首相也已经代表日本再次发誓绝不再发动战争了。

此外,据新闻秘书约翰·卡比所说,哈格尔也对日本政府努力推动冲绳地方官员批准一项填海造地计划,为驻冲绳美军整编重组铺平道路表示了感谢。
