Cuba has re-established direct telephone links with the United States for the first time in 15 years. It is the first agreement signed between Cuban and American companies since the announcement last December that both states will renew diplomatic ties after more than 50 years of hostility. Will Grant reports from Havana.

"A key part of the decision by the Obama administration to restore diplomatic ties with Cuba was to help boost telecommunications on the island. In the long term it is hopped in Washington that would mean greater internet access. But for now it has at least brought a direct telephone connection between the two countries. Previously calls were rated by a third countries driving out of the cost of a call to the US from Cuba and making it prohibitively expensive for ordinary Cubans."

Key Phrases/Words

1. re-establish v. 重建,重新建立,恢复

2. hostility n. 敌意,敌对状态

3. prohibitively expensive 价格高昂(使人却步)
 


古巴15年来首次和美国重建电话连线。这是自去年12月份双方宣布在敌对50多年、重新恢复外交关系以来,古巴和美国签署的第一份协议。威尔.格兰特,哈瓦那为您报道。
    
 “奥巴马政府与古巴重建外交关系,重要的是此举能促进古巴的通信发展。华盛顿的愿景是古巴能进接入互联网。但是就目前而言两国至少有直接的电话连线。之前从古巴打往美国的电话需要通过第三方国家,昂贵的费用也使得大多数普通的古巴人无法承担。”
