朋友用法文来说就是Amis!在177826日,班哲明富兰克林在法国签订了友好与贸易条约 (Treaty of Amity and Commerce) ,以及同盟条约 (Treaty of Alliance) 。法国在友好与贸易条约中承认美国是一个独立的国家,同时也同意促进法国与美国之间的贸易往来。而第二项协定,也就是同盟条约,使建国不久的美国能和法国结为同盟,在独立战争中一起对抗大英帝国。法国决定在美国完全脱离大英帝国独立之前,会给予美国完全的军力支持。而后,这项条约则要求法国与美国在任何和平协定中都必须相互合作。你知道法国曾帮助美国赢得独立战争吗?

Friends, and in French, amis! On February 6, 1778, Benjamin Franklin was in France signing the Treaty of Amity and Commerce and the Treaty of Alliance. The Treaty of Amity and Commerce recognized the U.S. as an independent nation and promoted trade between France and America. The second agreement, the Treaty of Alliance, made the fledgling United States and France allies against Great Britain in the Revolutionary War. The French decided to back the U.S. in its military efforts until the U.S. had full independence from Great Britain. After that, the treaty required France and the U.S. to work together on any peace agreement. Did you know the French helped the U.S. to win the Revolutionary War?
