From Washington, this is VOA news. I'm Dave DeForest reporting.

U-N plan for Libya is approved: Representatives of 17 countries and four world bodies have wrapped up a meeting with representatives of Libya's two rival factions with support for a new unity government. The meeting in Rome Sunday was jointly chaired by U-S Secretary of State John Kerry and his Italian counterpart, Paolo Gentiloni. Here is Mr. Kerry.

“The communiqué that we issued today calls on all parties to accept an immediate comprehensive ceasefire in all parts of Libya.  And no one understands the need for that better than the Libyan leaders that are with us in Rome.”

Libya's two rival governments plan to sign the accord in Morocco on Wednesday.

U.S. President Barack Obama is hailing the climate change agreement reached in Paris as a potential turning point for the world.

“This agreement sends a powerful signal that the world is firmly committed to a low-carbon future. And that has the potential to unleash investment and innovation in clean energy at a scale we’ve never seen before.”

In an eight-minute statement Saturday, Mr. Obama said by approving the agreement, nearly 200 nations have shown the world has both the will and ability to take on the challenge of climate change.

Officials in northwestern Pakistan say a bomb exploded in a market on Sunday, killing at least 23 people and wounding about 55.  The explosion happened in Parachinar, the administrative center of the Kurram district on the Afghan border.

At least 13 women have won municipal council seats in Saudi Arabia's first election open to women voters and candidates. Early results showed a victory by Salma bint Hizab al-Oteibi.  She is the first confirmed victory for a woman running for a municipal council seat.  This is VOA news.

The U.S. government is urging American citizens to leave Burundi amid violence involving the military and police officers. The State Department says it has ordered the departure of non-emergency U.S. officials and the families of personnel.  Violence began in Burundi in the wake of contested elections and an attempted coup in May.

Voters in the Central African Republic are casting ballots Sunday in a referendum on a new constitution. The process was disrupted in several parts of the capital, Bangui, where there were reports of gunfire and fighting between opponents and supporters of the referendum.  Some rebels have also threatened to disrupt the voting. The new constitution calls for the creation of a Senate, limiting future presidents to two five-year terms in office, and safeguards for religious freedoms.

Exit polls in France are projecting that voters decisively rejected the country's anti-immigrant far right National Front in Sunday's regional run-off elections. The National Front topped voting in six of the country's 13 regions in the first round of elections a week ago, but the exit polls showed former president Nicolas Sarkozy and his allies were the clear winners in the second round.

A new U.S. political survey shows Texas Senator Ted Cruz, with strong support from evangelical Christians and conservative activists, has surged to the top among Republican presidential candidates in Iowa.  Iowa will hold the nation's first 2016 nominating contest. The Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics poll late Saturday said Cruz is now winning the support of 31 percent of Republicans likely to vote in the February 1 party caucuses, outdistancing billionaire real estate developer Donald Trump who has 21 percent.

The Russian defense ministry says one of its destroyers in the Aegean Sea fired warning shots Sunday at a Turkish fishing vessel. The ministry said a guided missile destroyer was unable to make radio contact with the approaching Turkish fishing vessel, which failed to respond to visual signals and flares.  Russia said the destroyer fired the warning shots when the fishing boat was 600 meters away.  It quickly changed course and passed within 540 meters.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe ended a visit to India Sunday after reaching a number of key agreements. The two countries on Saturday sealed their warming ties with an agreement for Japan to build India's first high-speed train, defense pacts that will clear the way for Japan to sell weapons to India, and progress on civil nuclear agreement.

联合国关于利比亚的计划获得通过:来自17个国家和4个国际组织,以及利比亚两个敌对派系的代表举行了会晤,支持组建新的利比亚联合政府。上周日在罗马举行的这次会晤是由美国国务卿约翰·克里、意大利外交部长保罗·真蒂罗尼主持的。以下是国务卿克里的讲话。

“我们今天在此发表公报,呼吁利比亚所有派系立刻全方面停止交火。今天,来到罗马与我们共聚一堂的利比亚领导人们,比任何人都明白实现停火的必要性。”

利比亚的这两个敌对政府计划于周三在摩洛哥签署协议。

美国总统奥巴马向在巴黎达成的气候变化协议表示祝贺,认为这可能是世界的转折点。

“这份协议传递出世界走向低碳的强有力的信号。这也表明在清洁能源方面的投资和创新活力将前所未有地得以释放。

在星期六的8分钟演讲中,奥巴马称协议的签署,表明有近200个国家有意愿和能力采取行动应对气候的变化。

巴基斯坦西北部官员称,周日在一个市场发生的炸弹爆炸造成至少23人死亡,另有55人受伤。爆炸发生在位于阿富汗边境地区的勒姆行政中心帕拉奇尔纳。

在沙特阿拉伯首次向女性选民和候选人开放的选举中,至少有13名女性赢得了市议会席位。早期的结果表明萨尔玛·宾特·海扎伯·阿尔·奥忒毕获胜。她是首位确定赢得市议会竞选席位的女性。这就是VOA新闻。

美国政府敦促美国公民远离布隆迪暴乱,此次暴乱涉及军队和警员。国防部称已经命令没有紧急任务的美国官员及其家属离开。布隆迪的暴乱始于五月国内有争议的竞选和一场未遂的政变。

周日中非共和国公民就新宪法进行全民公投。由于有报道称首都班基目前处于公投支持者和反对者的交火中,这次公投的几个地区受到干扰。一些反叛者威胁会干扰这次投票。新宪法要求新建一个议院,限制未来总统只能有两个5年任期,以及保卫宗教自由。

法国民调预测,在周日的地区决胜选举中,选民会坚决抵制本国反移民的极右翼政党——国民阵线。一周前举行的首轮选举,在十三个选区里国民阵线在其中六个选区领先,但民调显示前法国总统尼古拉·萨科齐和他的盟友是第二轮选举的最大赢家。

美国最新政治调查显示,深受福音派基督教徒和保守派人士欢迎的德克萨斯州参议员泰德.科鲁兹在爱荷华州的共和党总统候选人竞争中跃居首位。爱荷华州是2016年美国总统候选人提名选举的第一站。周六晚些时候《德美茵纪事报》刊登彭博社的政治调查,该调查显示,有望参加2月1日共和党党内预选会议投票的共和党人中有31%支持科鲁兹,超过地产大亨、亿万富翁唐纳德.特朗普,后者的支持率是21%。

俄罗斯国防部长称周日,俄一艘驱逐舰在爱琴海对土耳其渔船鸣枪示警。他表示土耳其渔船不断靠近,忽视俄方发出的视觉信号的照明弹,而该导弹驱逐舰又无法连接上他们的无线电信号。俄方表示渔船离舰艇600米时俄舰射击示警。在距离540米时,渔船迅速改变路线通过此区域。

周天,日本首相安倍晋三与印度达成一系列重要协议后,结束此次访问。周六,日印达成日本为印度建设首条高铁协议,签订防御条约为日本向印度出售武器扫清障碍,并在民用核协议上取得了一定进展,这标志着两国关系升温。
