From Washington, this is VOA News. A call from a top US diplomats for face-to-face talks between Russia and Ukraine. Israel boards a ship in international water it says was carrying Iranian weapons headed to Palestinian militants. I’m Ira Mellman in Washington.

US Secretary of State John Kerry has announced additional multinational talks in the coming days on the crisis in Ukraine and said western and Ukrainian diplomats are calling for a face-to-face meeting between Kiev and Moscow. Kerry spoke Wednesday in Paris telling reporters he and envoys from Britain and Ukraine met separately with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and with Ukraine interim Foreign Minister.

“As I said yesterday in Kiev and as President Obama has said as well, and as I said to Foreign Minister Lavrov today, Russia made a choice and we have clearly stated that we believe it’s a wrong choice that it’s the choice to move troops into Crimea.”

Earlier, in a separate meeting Kerry and his British counterpart William Hague and the Ukrainian Foreign Minister called for the immediate deployment of international observers in the eastern Ukraine and Crimea near the Russian border. Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov did not attend that meeting.

The European Union says it’s freezing the financial assets in Europe of 18 Ukrainians, it says misused the Kiev government funds. The EU’s Foreign Ministers approved the list Wednesday but withheld the names for a day before their official publication in the EU’s legal journal. So the Ukrainians would not have a last chance to withdraw the assets. The sanctions will be effective for a year.

Sources report that ousted Ukraine President Victor Yanukovych could be on the EU list. Switzerland and Liechtenstein, two European nations outside the group of 28 EU countries, had already frozen his assets in their countries along with the holdings of 19 other Ukrainian officials. The EU officials says they hope to recover the assets, and return the money to Ukraine’s new government. Meanwhile, the EU’s executive arm said it had agreed on a 15 billion dollar package of loans and grants for the debt-ridden Ukraine government.

The United Nations special envoy on Ukraine was forced to leave Crimea after being stopped by gunmen and surrounded by a crowd. VOA’s Elizabeth Arrott has more from the Crimea regional capital Simferopol where anti-Western sentiment is growing.

UN envoy Robert Serry agreed to cut short his diplomatic efforts in Crimea after a group of armed men harassed, followed and then trapped him in a coffee shop in Simferopol. Crowd shouted progression slogans as Serry headed to the airport. UN Deputy Secretary General Jan Eliasson on a mission in Kiev says Serry is in good shape physically and denied initial reports that he had been kidnapped. The men appeared to be part of the irregular pro-Russian volunteer forces whose numbers have increased since the appearance of unidentified soldiers in the Ukrainian Region over the past week. Those troops are widely believed to be Russian. Elizabeth Arrott, VOA News, Simferopol.

The government of South Sudan says fighting at an army base in the capital that has been contained but only after 5 soldiers were killed and scores of others injured. A government spokesman says Wednesday’s clashes at the Giada army barracks on the outskirts of Juba were unrelated to the ongoing conflict between the government and rebel forces. The army’s information and public relations director said the fighting stemmed from unpaid salaries and what he called a misunderstanding between the soldiers and themselves, soldiers themselves rather, he said, other soldiers from outside the barracks intervened and put an end to the situation.

The Israeli military says it seized a ship in the Red Sea Wednesday that was carrying dozens of advanced Iranian-supplied rockets destined for Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip. They said the Panamanian-flagged cargo vessel was boarded in international waters off the coast of Sudan and Eritrea without resistance but would be escorted to the Israeli port of Eilat within days. An Israeli military spokesman said the ship was carrying Syrian-made M-302 rockets, a weapon that could have struck deep into Israel from Gaza and would have significantly enhanced the firepower of Palestinian militant groups such as Hamas. Israel says the shipment originated in Syria and was intercepted in an operation that followed months of intelligence gathering. The French News Agency quoted an unnamed Iranian military official in a state-run Iranian television is completely denying the report. I’m Ira Mellman, VOA News.


来自华盛顿,这里是VOA新闻。美国高级外交官呼吁俄罗斯和乌克兰举行直接对话。以色列在国际水域登上一艘运输伊朗武器至巴勒斯坦武装份子的船只。我是艾拉.梅尔曼。华盛顿报道。

美国国务卿约翰.克里宣布,为(解决)乌克兰危机,将在未来几天里举行附加的多方对话,他还表示,西方和乌克兰外交官都呼吁俄乌双方举行直接对话。周三,克里在巴黎发表谈话,他告诉记者,他已经同英国和乌克兰的特使分别与俄罗斯外长谢尔盖.拉夫罗夫和乌克兰临时外长举行会晤。

“就像奥巴马总统说过的一样,昨天在基辅,今天同俄外长拉夫罗夫会谈时我再次重申,俄罗斯做出了选择,我们明确表示俄军进驻克里米亚是一个错误的决定。”

早前,在另一场会谈中,美国国务卿克里、英国外交大臣威廉·黑格尔与乌克兰外长共同呼吁立即向靠近俄罗斯边界的乌克兰东部地区和克里米亚派驻国际观察员。俄罗斯外长拉夫罗夫并未出席本次会议。

欧盟表示正在冻结18名乌克兰公民在欧洲的金融资产,因这些人滥用乌克兰政府资金。周三,欧盟各国外长已通过了这份名单,但直到一天后才在欧盟法律期刊上正式公布。因此,这些乌克兰公民无望在最后一刻撤回资金。此次制裁有效期为一年。

有消息透露,被罢黜的乌克兰总统维克多.亚努科维奇可能也在欧盟的冻结名单之列。欧盟28成员国之外的瑞士、列支登士敦两国已冻结了亚努科维奇及其他19名乌克兰官员在两国的资产。欧盟官员表示他们希望追回这些资产并还给乌克兰新政府。同时,欧盟执行委员会称已同意向负债累累的乌克兰政府提供150亿美元的一揽子打包贷款和资助。

在遭枪手拦截并被包围后,联合国乌克兰问题特别大使被迫离开了克里米亚。美国之音记者伊丽莎白•阿洛特从反西方情绪正日益高涨的克里米亚首府辛菲罗波尔发回更多报道。

在遭一伙武装人员骚扰、尾随并最终被围困在辛菲罗波尔的一家咖啡店后,联合国大使罗伯特•塞瑞同意中断其在克里米亚的外交努力。当塞瑞前往机场时,群众不断喊着激进的口号。在基辅进行访问的联合国副秘书长简•埃里森称塞瑞身体状况良好,否认了之前报道的塞瑞曾遭绑架的消息。那些围困他的人,似乎是亲俄的非正规志愿兵成员,自上周在乌克兰地区出现了不明身份的士兵以来,他们的人数在不断增加。人们普遍认为这些人归属俄罗斯部队。伊丽莎白•阿洛特,美国之音,辛菲罗波尔报道。

南苏丹政府表示,在首都陆军基地发生的激战已平息,但造成5名士兵死亡,多人受伤。一名政府发言人称,周三的冲突发生于首都朱巴郊区的贾达军营,与当下政府和叛军间的战斗无关。军队新闻及公共关系发言人表示,此次冲突源于欠薪及士兵间的误解。他强调,是士兵内部的争执,不过直到该军营外的其他士兵干预后,局势才得以控制。

以色列军方周三在红海截获一艘装有许多先进火箭的船只,这些火箭由伊朗提供给加沙地带的巴勒斯坦武装分子。以方称,这艘悬挂巴拿马国旗的货船在近苏丹和厄立特里亚的公海被以方登船,并未遭遇抵抗,但几天内将被押送至以色列港口埃拉特。一名以色列军方发言人表示,该船装载了叙利亚制造的M-302型火箭,此型火箭能从加沙发射至以色列,也将大大增强巴勒斯坦武装组织例如哈马斯的火力。以色列称这批火箭从叙利亚出发,但经过数月的情报收集后,在以军方的一次行动中遭到拦截。据法国新闻机构援引一名不愿透露姓名的伊朗军官在伊朗国有电视台的话,他彻底否认了以方的报道。我是伊拉•梅尔曼,VOA新闻。
