From Washington, this is VOA News.

The U.S. promises to work closely with European allies over surveillance activities. Congo's M23 declares an end to the rebellion. I'm Ray Kouguell, reporting from Washington.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is pressing efforts for peace between Israel and the Palestinians in new talks with both sides. Secretary Kerry arrived in Israel late Tuesday seeking to reassure Israel ahead of a series of separate meetings Wednesday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.

Earlier in the day, during a visit to Portland, Secretary Kerry said legitimate questions about U.S. surveillance efforts should not affect upcoming trade talks between the United States and the European Union. Mr. Kerry said Washington and European allies are all trying to balance the protection and privacy of its citizens.

Ultimately, if we get it right, which we will, we can not only alleviate concerns but we can actually strengthen our intelligence relationships going forward and we can all be more secure and safer as a result, as well as protecting the privacy of citizens.

The United Nations diplomat charged with coordinating destruction of Syria's chemical weapons says she expects to know later this month where the weapon stockpile will be destroyed. Dutch envoy Sigrid Kaag, speaking Tuesday in New York said talks in the Hague this week involving Syrian authorities and envoys from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons will determine where the actual demolitions will take place.

A date for possible peace talks aimed at ending the ongoing war in Syria is being pushed back with diplomats now hoping they can take place before year's end. U.N.-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi, laid out his revised hopes Tuesday after meeting in Geneva with U.S. and Russian officials, as well as with diplomats from the other permanent members of the U.N. Security Council.

We were hoping that we would be in the position to announce the date today. Unfortunately we have not. But we are still striving to see if we can have the conference before the end of the year, and you know, as far as the United Nations is concerned, we're ready and indeed the secretary general is impatient to get this conference going, because the situation in Syria is extremely bad.

Mr. Brahimi said progress with Syria's opposition forming a credible delegation to send to the conference would be a big step forward.

The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency says Iran, North Korea and Syria are not cooperating fully with the IAEA on their nuclear pursuits. In his annual reports to the U.N. General Assembly, IAEA Chief Yukiya Amano questioned their implementation of nuclear safeguards. He said the IAEA cannot provide credible assurance regarding undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran, and thus cannot say all nuclear material there is intended for peaceful purposes.

The M23 rebels in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo say they're laying down their arms after military forces drove them from their last remaining strongholds. VOA's Gabe Joselow reports the declaration follows a call from African leaders meeting in South Africa for an end to the fighting.

In a statement Tuesday, M23 President Bertrand Bisimwa requested rebel commanders to prepare fighters for disarmament, demobilisation and social reintegration. Bisimwa said the group would pursue its goals through political means. M23 seized parts of Congo's north Kivu province last year, but the Congolese military backed by United Nations forces has steadily retaken territory from M23 in recent weeks. Congolese government spokesman Lambert Mende told VOA military operations effectively ended overnight. Gabe Joselow, VOA News, Nairobi.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford admitted he smoked crack cocaine confirming allegations that have surrounded him for months since reporters from two media outlets said they saw a video of him smoking the drug. Ford initially insisted the video do not exist, and refused to address allegations. Police uncovered the footage during an investigation of one of the major's associates for extortion related to the video. Ford's not been charged with any crime, but many in the Canadian city are calling for him to resign.

U.S. voters are casting ballots in a handful of key elections. The eastern states of New Jersy and Virginia are electing governors while large influential cities, including New York, Atlanta, and Boston, are electing mayors. Political analysts are looking for clues from the results to help predict the outcome of next year's congressional elections.

来自华盛顿,这里是voa新闻。

美国承诺会与欧洲盟国密切合作结束监听活动。刚果的M23宣布结束叛乱行动。我是雷·库格尔从华盛顿发回报道。

在同以色列与巴勒斯坦进行的新一轮谈判中,美国国务卿约翰·克里敦促巴以双方努力实现和平。国务卿克里在周二晚些时候抵达以色列,试图打消以色列的担忧。之后,他在周三举行的一系列单独会谈中分别会晤了以色列总理本杰明·内塔尼亚胡和巴勒斯坦领导人马哈茂德·阿巴斯。

今天早些时候,在访问波特兰期间,国务卿克里表示有关美国监视行为的合法性问题不会影响即将到来的美国与欧盟间的贸易谈判。克里称华盛顿与欧洲盟友试图在保护行为与公民隐私间保持平衡。

最终,如果我们进展顺利,我们不仅仅能减轻焦虑,实际上也能加强并促进我们之间情报联系,我们也能获得更多的安全,同时公民的隐私也将得到保护。

负责协调销毁叙化武工作的联合国官员称,她预计将在本月晚些时候获知销毁武器库的场所。荷兰大使西格利德•卡戈周二在纽约的讲话中指出,叙利亚当局与禁化武组织的使节本周在海牙的会谈将决定销毁工作的具体场所。

为结束叙利亚接连不断的战争而拟举行的会谈,其日期曾被外交官们推迟,现在有望在年底前举行。联合国-阿盟特使拉赫达尔•拉希米,周二在日内瓦会见了美俄及其它联合国安理会常任理事国的外交官之后,提出了他的修改过的希望。

我们也希望今天能宣布日期。遗憾的是我们做不到。不过我们力争能在年底前召开会议,你知道,就联合国而言,我们已做好准备,而秘书长也殷切地希望这次大会能够召开,因为叙利亚的形式极度恶化。

卜拉西米先生称叙利亚反对派的进步在于为会议选派了一个可信的代表团,这是一大进展。

国际原子能机构总干事称,伊朗、朝鲜、叙利亚在拥核方面没有完全同国际原子能机构进行全面合作。他在向联合国提交的年度报告中这样提到。在联合国大会上,国际原子能机构主席天野之弥质疑这些国家在核保障监管执行方面的情况。有关伊朗未申报的核材料及核活动,他表示国际原子能机构对此无法提供可靠地担保,因此无法说明所有的核材料都会用于和平目的。

在军队将他们赶出仅剩的据点之后,刚果民主共和国东部的M23叛军表示,他们决定放下武器。VOA的加布·邹赛罗报道称,在南非召开了为结束战争而准备的非洲领导人会议,会后发布了一份宣言。

在周二的一份声明中,M23的领导人伯特兰·比西姆瓦要求叛军指挥官为裁军、复员以及重新走向社会做准备。比西姆瓦称本组织将通过政治手段实现自己的目标。M23于去年夺去了刚果北部基伏省的部分地区,但最近几周,刚果政府军在联合国的支持下稳步从M23的手中重新夺回被占领土。刚果政府发言人兰伯特·曼德告诉VOA有效的军事行动在昨晚结束。加布·邹赛罗,VOA新闻,内罗毕。

多伦多市长罗波•福特承认吸食过强效可卡因,确认了传闻,自两则视频报道中记者称他们看到过他吸毒的镜头之后,有关市长的传闻数月不断。最初福特坚称视频并不存在,并拒绝做出任何声明。警方在调查一名重要伙伴涉嫌勒索的视频时发现了该镜头。福特没有受到任何犯罪指控,不过许多加拿大市民要求他辞职。

美国选民正在为一小部分关键选举投票。东部州新泽西和维吉尼亚正在选举州长,而有影响力的大城市,包括纽约,亚特兰大和波士顿正在选举市长。政治分析人士正在从这些选举的结果中寻找线索,以便为明年即将到来的国会选举做预测。
