From Washington, this is VOA News.
  
President Obama to unveil immigration reform plan shortly....

Final push underway on Iran nuclear talks....
 
I'm Ray Kouguell reporting from Washington.

President Barack Obama is set to unveil his plan in about three hours from now to unilaterally protect millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States from deportation. In advance of his White House speech President Obama said that the country's immigration policies have been ineffective for too long, forcing him to take executive action after Congress failed to reach agreement on a new law. Republican lawmakers are angry at Mr. Obama's go-it-alone plan, noting he is frequently said he did not have the legal authority to change the immigration policies by himself. President Obama's remarks can be heard live starting at One Hour Universal Time Friday on voanews.com.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is in Vienna for high-level nuclear talks as a deadline looms just four days from now for a comprehensive agreement on Iran's atomic program. VOA's Al Pessin reports:

“Secretary Kerry and other western officials say Iran must still make the strategic decision to accept limits on its nuclear program -- a move that would contradict the so-called red lines' set by its supreme leader earlier this year. On Thursday, the Reuters News Agency quoted an unnamed U.S. official as saying the negotiators are talking about another extension, until March of next year. But earlier Thursday in Paris, Secretary Kerry said the opposite.

"We're not talking about an extension, not among ourselves.  We have not talked about the ingredients of an extension.  We're talking about getting an agreement.”  Still, Kerry said he would be willing to look at the possibility of an extension if the talks go to "the final hour."

Al Pessin, VOA News, Vienna.”

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden is in Ukraine for talks with the country's leadership on the possibility of fresh assistance to the Kyiv government, as it battles a pro-Russian insurgency near the Russian border. Vice President Biden will meet Friday with President Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, as controversy swirls over renewed calls for Washington to supply lethal aid to the Ukrainian military.
 
A new United Nations report finds the presence of large numbers of sophisticated weapons as well as foreign fighters, including Russian soldiers, are worsening the human rights situation in eastern Ukraine.  Lisa Schlein has details:

“This seventh U.N. monthly report on Ukraine shows the situation in the rebel-controlled areas of eastern Ukraine has worsened.   The report says more than 4,300 people were killed and more than 9,900 wounded in the conflict-affected areas from mid-April to November 18th.  According to the U.N., an average of 13 people have been killed every day since the government and rebels reached agreement on a cease-fire in early September.

Lisa Schlein for VOA News, Geneva.”
 

Police arrested seven people at Nigeria's National Assembly Thursday when security forces tried to block the speaker of the House of Representatives from going inside. Police fired tear gas when violence erupted between security forces and supporters of House speaker Aminu Tambu-wal. The lawmakers were meeting to debate President Goodluck Jonathan's request to extend the state of emergency in three northeastern states where the army is battling radical Islamist group Boko Haram.
 
Health authorities in Mali say they are monitoring 338 people linked with the country's six fatal Ebola cases.  The World Health Organization says all 118 people who had direct contact with the Ebola victims have completed their 21-day incubation period without developing symptoms. The WHO reports a total of 5420 deaths in the latest Ebola outbreak.
 
North Korea is threatening to conduct a new nuclear test in response to a U.N. committee's condemnation of alleged human rights abuses by Pyongyang. A U-N General Assembly Committee resolution recommends the Security Council refer North Korea to the International Criminal Court for alleged crimes against humanity. North Korea says the resolution is "filled with vicious slanders."
 
American film, theater, and television director Mike Nichols has died at the age of 83. Nichols died of cardiac arrest late Wednesday. During a career spanning more than a half-century, Nichols managed to win the four biggest awards in U.S. entertainment -- an Oscar for movie direction, several Emmys for television, a Grammy for a 1961 comedy album, and nine Tony awards for Broadway shows.

美国之音新闻,华盛顿报道。

总统奥巴马即将出台移民改革计划....

伊朗核会谈进入最后关键阶段....

3个小时后,总统奥巴马将出台其移民改革计划,根据该计划,奥巴马将单方面保护美国上百万无正式身份的移民免遭驱逐。在白宫演说前,奥巴马表示美国的移民政策长期以来都是无效的,国会此前并没有就新法达成一致意见,这使得他不得不采取行政手段。奥巴马这一单干计划惹恼了共和党的立法委员。他们指出,奥巴马以前经常表示自己没有改变移民政策的法定权限。周五格林威治时间一点,请登陆voanews.com,收听奥巴马总统的现场演说。

美国国务卿约翰·克里在维也纳参加高层核会谈,这距离伊朗原子能项目达成综合共识的最后期限仅剩四天。

“克里国务卿和西方其他官员称,伊朗仍然必须做出接受限制其核项目的战略决策——这一举措将颠覆其最高领导人今年早些时候设置的所谓红线。周四,路透社引用匿名美国官员的话称,谈判代表们正在商量延期至明年三月。但周四早些时候在巴黎,克里国务卿却表达了相反的意见。”

“我们相互之间并没有讨论延期。我们没有谈论延期相关的内容。我们讨论的是达成一份协议。”尽管如此,克里也表示如果会谈能进入“终结时刻”,他也愿意考虑延期的可能性。

艾尔·佩辛,VOA新闻,维也纳报道。”

一份最新联合国报告发现在乌克兰东部出现大量先进武器和外国军人,其中包括俄罗斯士兵,这使得该地区人权状况不断恶化。李莎.席琳详细报道。

“这是联合国关于乌克兰的第7份月度报告,该报告显示在东部乌克兰反叛份子控制地区的局势已恶化。该报告显示从4月中旬开始到11月18日,在遭受冲突的地区已造成4300多人死亡,9900多人受伤。根据联合国的报告,自9月初乌政府与叛乱份子达成停火协议以来,平均每天有13人死亡。”

李莎.席琳,VOA新闻,日内瓦报道。

马里卫生当局表示,正在监测与该国感染了致命性的埃博拉病毒的6个人有过接触的338人。世界卫生组织表示,与埃博拉感染者有过直接接触的所有118人已经渡过了21天的病毒潜伏期,没有感染症状。世界卫生组织报告称最近爆发的埃博拉疫情共造成5420人死亡。

联合国委员会指责平壤践踏人权,面对指责,朝鲜威胁将进行一项新的核试验。一项联合国大会委员会决议建议安理会将涉嫌反人类罪的朝鲜提交国际刑事法庭。朝方称这一决议“纯属恶意诽谤”。

美国电影、戏剧及电视导演迈克·尼尔克斯逝世,享年83岁。本周三夜间,尼尔克斯因心脏骤停逝世。在长达半个多世纪的职业生涯中,尼尔克斯赢得了美国娱乐界的四大奖项——一个奥斯卡最佳电影导演奖,多个电视艾美奖,1961年的格莱美最佳喜剧专辑奖,九个百老汇托尼奖。
