From Washington, this is VOA News. UN chief heads to Moscow and Kiev to defuse Crimea crisis. Chinese tensions spill over a Malaysian Airliner. I’m Ray Kouguell, reporting from Washington.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is traveling to Moscow and Kiev in a bid to help diplomatically resolve the crisis in Crimea. He’ll be arriving in Moscow Thursday to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. Mr.Ban will then go to Ukraine Friday for talks with interim Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and other officials. UN spokesman Farhan Haq says the Secretary General is hoping for a solution. “He believes the focus has to be engaged in direct dialogue between Moscow and Kiev aimed at agreeing on specific measures that will pave the way for a diplomatic resolution and he believes that the path for a diplomatic resolution remains open if the parties choose to embrace it.”

Ukraine meanwhile says it’s drawn up plans to evacuate all of its outnumbered military personnel from the Crimean Peninsula. The move effectively surrenders military control over the territory as heavily armed pro-Russian militiamen seized the key Crimean base and announcing they would withdraw. Ukraine’s national security and Defense Counselor Chiefs in Kiev will seek UN support in turning Peninsula into a demilitarized zone. It was earlier Wednesday that pro-Russian militiamen seized Ukrainian naval headquarters in a Crimean port of Sevastopol and one day after Moscow signed a treaty with local authorities making Crimea part of Russia.

 Malaysian police forcibly remove grieving and wailing relatives of Chinese passengers from Wednesday’s briefing on the missing Malaysia Airline’s jet. Frustration boiled over as the families screamed demands at Malaysian officials, accusing them of lying, giving conflicting information and acting like gangsters. Some relatives are threatening a hunger strike. Malaysia’s Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said he understands emotions are high, and authorities are trying their very best to find the plane. He said investigators are trying to narrow the search area which now covers more than 7 million square kilometers from Kazakhstan to the southern Indian Ocean. Malaysia Airline’s flight 370 disappeared March 8th during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Israeli air strikes against Syrian military positions in the Golan Heights killed 1 soldier and wounded 7 in the most serious escalation between the 2 neighbors since Syria’s civil war broke out 3 years ago. Syria’s military confirmed the strikes which came in a response to an attack Tuesday on Israeli forces across the Israeli-Syrian ceasefire line in the Golan.

More deadly unrest in Egypt. 7 people were killed Wednesday as security forces raided a militant hideout near Cairo. Edward Yeranian reports from our Middle East Bureau in Cairo.

Egypt’s Interior Ministry says 2 officers were killed along with 5 militants when Egyptian police, military and special forces clashed with Islamist militants during a raid on a reported safe house of the Sinai-based group Ansar Beit al-Maqdis just north of Cairo. The militants opened fire on security forces and set off the car bomb sparking a gun battle that lasted several hours, the Ministry said. The group has stepped up attacks on Egyptian security forces since the military ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi last year. Edward Yeranian, for VOA News, Cairo. An Egyptian court sentenced more than 2 dozen Islamists, to many in absentia to death over violent attacks in the port city of Suez. One man received a 15-year sentence.

Negotiators from Iran and 6 world powers have adjourned what they called substantive and useful talks on Tehran’s nuclear program, saying they will resume April 7th in Vienna. European Union Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton says discussions have addressed Iran’s Uranium enrichment program, the country’s planned Arak heavy water reactor and western sanctions against Iran.

The world’s biggest automaker, Japan’s Toyota Motor Corporation is admitting that intentionally misled the public about deadly car safety problems several years ago and has agreed to pay a 1.2 billion dollar fine to the United States to settle a criminal investigation. US Attorney General Eric Holder announced the resolution of a 4-year case in Washington on Wednesday, calling the company’s conduct shameful. Investigation focused on the extent to which Toyota tried to hide the problems about unintended acceleration of some of its Toyota and Lexus models in 2009 and 2010. The malfunction led to deadly crashes as motorists were unable to control their vehicles when they suddenly raced to very high speeds.

美国之音新闻,华盛顿报道。联合国秘书长前往莫斯科和基辅以期平息克里米亚危机。中国由于马航飞机事件引发紧张气氛。我是雷.酷古尔,华盛顿报道。

联合国秘书长潘基文前往莫斯科和基辅,希望能有助于外交解决克里米亚危机。潘基文将在周四到达莫斯科,会见俄罗斯总统弗拉基米尔.普京及外长谢尔盖.拉夫罗夫。随后潘将于周五前往乌克兰会晤乌克兰临时总理阿尔谢尼.亚采纽克及其他官员。联合国发言人法尔汗.哈克表示秘书长希望能找到解决办法。“他认为重点是要莫斯科和基辅之间进行直接对话,旨在就一些具体措施达成一致意见,为外交解决铺平道路。同时他相信如果两国愿意,外交解决的途径仍然敞开着。”

与此同时,乌克兰表示计划从克里米亚半岛撤出所有军事人员。在全副武装的亲俄民兵控制克里米亚重要基地之际,乌克兰宣布撤军计划显然是向岛上的军事组织表示屈服。在基辅,乌克兰国家安全与防务顾问首长将寻求联合国的支持,试图将克里米亚变成非军事区。周三早些时候,亲俄民兵控制了克里米亚港口城市塞瓦斯托波尔的乌克兰海军总部,而此前一天,莫斯科与克里米亚当局签署协议,同意克里米亚加入俄罗斯。

在周三马航失联事件的发布会上,马来西亚警方强制悲痛欲绝的中国乘客家属离场。家属们高声呐喊,述说要求,悲愤的情绪一发不可收拾,他们指控警方撒谎,发布的信息前后不一且行为十分粗鲁。一些家属甚至威胁称会绝食抗议。马来西亚国防部长希沙姆丁.侯赛因表示,家属们激动的情绪他可以理解,马政府也正在尽全力寻找客机。他称调查人员正在努力缩小从哈萨克斯坦到南印度洋这段超过700万平方公里的搜寻范围。马来西亚370号航班3月8日从吉隆坡飞往北京,途中突然失踪。

以色列空袭了叙利亚驻戈兰高地的军事阵地,造成至少一名士兵死亡,七人受伤,这是自叙利亚内战爆发三年来两国出现的最严重升级事件。叙利亚军方证实,空袭是对周二以色列国防军穿越戈兰高地叙以边境停火线遭到袭击的回应。

埃及发生更致命的骚乱。周三,埃及安全部队突袭了开罗附近激进分子的藏身地,造成七人死亡。爱德华·亚瑞尼安从我们驻开罗的中东办事处发回报道。

埃及内政部称, 埃及警方,军队和特种部队在袭击安萨贝特艾马克迪斯组织( 总部位于西奈)在开罗北部安全藏匿处的过程中与伊斯兰武装分子发生混战,造成2名警察和5名武装分子丧生。内政部称武装分子朝安全部队开火,引爆汽车炸弹,激起持续数小时的枪战。自去年军方罢黜了伊斯兰派总统穆罕默德·穆尔西以来,该组织对埃及安全部队的攻击升级。爱德华·耶兰尼安,美国之音新闻,开罗报道。埃及一家法院在许多罪犯缺席的情况下,以暴力袭击港口城市苏伊士的罪名,对超过24名伊斯兰主义者进行了判决,许多人被判死刑,其中一人被判入狱15年。

针对伊朗德黑兰核计划展开的所谓具有实质性和有益性的会谈已暂时休会,伊朗和六大国的谈判专家称,会谈将有望于4月7日在维也纳重启。欧盟外交政策负责人凯瑟琳·阿什顿称,会谈着重讨论了伊朗的铀浓缩计划,阿拉克重水反应堆计划及西方针对伊朗的制裁等问题。

全球最大汽车制造商日本丰田汽车公司承认,早些年在人命关天的汽车安全问题上故意误导公众。该公司为摆平刑事调查,同意支付美国12亿美元罚款。周三,美国司法部长埃里克·霍尔德在华盛顿宣布了关于这起持续4年的案件的决议,他称丰田公司的行为卑鄙无耻。美方重点调查丰田公司对2009年和2010年的一些丰田和雷克萨斯车型突然加速问题的隐瞒程度。这种故障会使车主在突然加速时无法控制车速造成致命车祸。我是雷·寇格尔,美国之音新闻,更多资讯请登录我们的官网voanews.com。
