1993年7月23日,美国以获得情报为由,指控中国”银河号”货轮向伊朗运输制造化学武器的原料,并威胁要对中国进行制裁。”银河号”在印度洋的国际公海海域上被美军军舰截停并扣留长达三周之久,史称”银河号事件”。

事件发生后,中国政府在第一时间内对美国蛮横无理的行为提出了严正交涉。为消除国际社会的疑虑,中国政府以极大的耐心同意美国政府登船检查的要求,9月4日,”银河号”货轮被检查完毕,但并没有发现任何化学武器,”银河号”被迫中止正常航运长达33天。
The Chinese government immediately raised serious concerns with the United State over its brazen and brutal act. In order to dispel any possible misgivings on the part of some members of the international community, however, the Chinese government ultimately exercised self-restraint in agreeing to a request by the U.S. government for an inspection of the vessel. Completed on September 4, the inspection did not find any materials for chemical weapons on board the ship, which had been forced to suspend its scheduled voyage for 33 days.

“银河号事件”是美国霸权主义和强权政治的表现,它给中国政治和经济上造成了重大损失,中方要求美方公开道歉,并赔偿中方蒙受的一切经济损失。美国政府坚持拒绝道歉,给中美关系产生了严重的负面影响。
The Yinhe incident was a display of American hegemonismand power politics. It caused significant political and economic damage to China. In response, the Chinese government demanded a public apology and compensation for all economic losses incurred. The U.S. government however refused to apologize, resulting in seriously strained Sino-US relations.
