**美外交官拒绝对电话通话中涉欧盟言论置评**

美国外交官卢岚星期五拒绝就显然被窃听的私下谈话的内容发表评论。电话中的这个人对欧盟使用了贬低的语言。

卢岚星期五对记者说,她不会对“外交官之间的私下对话”发表评论。不过她称那段电话录音是“令人钦佩的间谍手法”,还说,录音的音频质量非常好。

美国官员暗示俄罗斯可能跟录音泄露有关,其中的声音听起来像是美国助理国务卿卢岚和美国驻乌克兰大使皮雅特。录音中的两人讨论了解决乌克兰当前政治危机的国际努力。听上去像卢岚的声音在通话中一度使用了不雅的字眼,说可以无视欧盟的立场。

美国官员星期四指出,始作俑者是俄罗斯副总理德米特里•罗戈津的一名助手,将这段录音上传到了YouTube网站。

罗戈津的助手罗斯库托夫星期五对美联社说,罗戈津和俄罗斯政府都跟这段录音的泄漏没有关联。

U.S. Diplomat: No Comment on Alleged EU Statement

U.S. diplomat Victoria Nuland refused to comment Friday on the leak of an apparently bugged private phone conversation in which the speaker makes a disparaging remark about the European Union.

Nuland told reporters Friday she will not comment on a "private diplomatic conversation." But she called the recording of the call "pretty impressive tradecraft," saying the audio quality of the recording was very good.

U.S. officials have implied Russia may be involved in the leak of the recording, which features voices resembling those of Assistant Secretary of State Nuland and U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt. The people on the alleged call discuss international efforts to resolve Ukraine's ongoing political crisis, and at one point, the voice resembling Nuland's uses vulgar wording to suggest the European Union's position should be ignored.

U.S. officials on Thursday pointed to a tweet by an aide to Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin as the first to promote the recording, which appeared on the YouTube website.

An aide to Rogozin, Dmitry Loskutov, told the Associated Press on Friday that neither Rogozin nor the Russian government played a role in leaking the tape.

**冬奥会开幕前美飞俄航班禁液体登机**

美国运输安全官员禁止前往俄罗斯的美国旅客携带任何液体、胶状物或喷雾剂登机,原因是防止可能的恐怖威胁。

所个报道表示,当局周四发出这一命令,一天后索契冬季奥运会将正式开幕。当局说,将针对当局所说的“持续发展的威胁局势”采取因应措施来保护美国人。

上个月,俄罗斯开始禁止装有液体的随身携带行李登上班机。

美国国土安全部官员警告飞往俄罗斯的航空公司严防可能装满炸药的牙膏管。他们没有提供导致这一警告的情报细节。

伊斯兰极端分子威胁要破坏这届奥运会。

US Bans Travelers From Bringing Liquids on Flights to Russia

U.S. transportation security officials are banning American travelers from carrying any liquids, gels or sprays on flights to Russia because of a possible terror threat.

Various reports say authorities gave the order Thursday, one day before the Winter Olympics officially open in Sochi. They say they will respond to protect Americans against what they call an "ever evolving threat picture."

Russia banned liquids from carry-on luggage on flights last month.

U.S. homeland security officials have warned airlines flying to Russia to watch out for toothpaste tubes that may be filled with explosives. They gave no details on the intelligence that led to the warnings.

Islamic extremists have threatened to disrupt the Olympics.
