Taiwan will not host any events in 2008 Olympics

台灣將不會舉辦任何2008年奧運項目

Taiwan will not host any events in 2008 Olympics

None of the 2008 Beijing Olympics Games events will be held in Taiwan, Mainland Affairs Council Vice Chairman Liu Te-shun said yesterday.

大陸委員會副主委劉德勳昨日表示,2008年北京奧運將不會有任何比賽項目來台舉辦。

Liu said that according to the National Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, all events in the 2008 Olympics Games will be taken place in Beijing except sailing and equestrian, which will be held in Qingdao and Hong Kong respectively.

劉德勳表示根據體育委員會,2008年奧運的所有運動項目都將於北京舉辦,除了帆船賽在青島以及賽馬在香港舉辦。

In relation to whether the Olympic Torch relay will pass through the island, Liu said that China has recently submitted their proposal to the International Olympic Committee and that both the MAC and the NCPFS are keeping their eyes on the issue.

至於奧運火炬是否繞行至本島,劉德勳表示中國已向國際奧會提出此項提議,陸委會與體委會都會密切注意此議題。

Taiwan insists that all IOC members are entitled to equal rights and responsibilities and hopes that Taiwan's sovereignty will not be degraded.

台灣方面則堅持所有奧會成員享有同等權利與責任,並且希望台灣主權將不會被矮化。

MAC Chairman Joseph Wu said earlier last week that Taiwan would consider allowing the China to include the island in the relay under the condition that China does not make Taiwan as part of the domestic route.

陸委會主委吳釗燮上週稍早表示,在中國不將台灣納入部分國內路線的情況下,台灣將會考慮允許中國將本島加入其傳遞路線。

“For example, the torch cannot be passed to Taiwan from a Chinese city and then relayed back to Mainland China,”Wu explained.

吳釗燮解釋:「舉例來說,聖火不能從中國城市繞行至台灣然後再傳遞回去中國大陸。」

Liu noted that the NCPFS said it would consult related organizations to gain deeper understanding of China' actual preparatory measures on hosting the 2008 Olympics Games to ensure Taiwan's overall interest.

劉德勳指出,體委會表示將會與相關組織一同商量,深入了解中國舉辦2008年奧運的實際準備措施,以確保台灣的整體利益。
