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

Talks on Syria to begin: U.N. envoy on Syria Staffan de Mistura says talks between representatives of the Syrian government and opposition members will begin in Geneva on Friday.
 
"We are going to aim at proximity talks, starting on the 29th and ongoing for six months on a staggered, chronological proximity approach."  
 
He did not specify who was invited.
 

 Libya's internationally-recognized parliament in Tobruk voted overwhelmingly Monday not to approve the new 32-member U.N.-sponsored "national unity" government.  Edward Yeranian reports.

 
"Members of Libya's Tobruk-based parliament, one of two legislative bodies vying for power in the country, applauded after voting against the recently named 32-minister government of U.N.-appointed Prime Minister Fayez Saraj.   Eighty nine MP's called for Saraj to appoint a smaller 17-member Cabinet, instead, within the next 10 days. Arab media reported the parliamentarians did approve Saraj's nomination for prime minister, as well as the "governing council," stipulated in the U.N.-backed Skeirat national unity accord. Edward Yeranian, Cairo."
 

 The U.S. is stepping up efforts to help Laos deal with such problems as hunger, the existence of unexploded bombs and the need to provide access to technology in some areas. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry outlined the efforts during a Monday visit to Vientiane. He also held talks to lay the groundwork for a special ASEAN summit next month in California.

Suicide bombers Monday struck the town of Bodoon the Nigeria-Cameroon border. The blasts killed at least 25 people and wounded many others.  Officials say up to four bombers blew themselves up in the town, located in an area frequently targeted by Boko Haram militants. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
 

 In the U-S presidential race, the latest opinion polls indicate Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are nearly tied in the state of Iowa.  On February 1 Iowa will hold neighborhood meetings to begin the process of choosing delegates who will participate in nominating conventions next summer. On the Republican side, businessman Donald Trump and Senator Ted Cruz are far ahead of the rest of the field of 12 candidates in Iowa.  Opinion polls give Trump the edge.

 The European Union police agency issued a report Monday saying the Islamic State and other militant groups are likely to carry out large scale attacks in Europe.  Europol says Europe is facing the most significant terrorist threat in over 10 years. The report says "the attacks will be primarily directed at soft targets," because of the impact it generates. " Europol is also launching a new European Counter Terrorism Center, based in The Netherlands.

A senior U.S. Treasury official is accusing Russian President Vladimir Putin of corruption.  Adam Szubin, who oversees U.S. Treasury sanctions, says the Kremlin leader used his position to enrich his friends and allies at the expense of others. Szubin makes the accusation in a BBC documentary scheduled for broadcast Monday evening. In the broadcast, he says the U.S. government has known of Mr. Putin's corruption for "many, many years."

A rare blast of winter weather has paralyzed much of eastern Asia, with temperatures falling to record lows in places accustomed to much warmer conditions. A combination of snow, sleet and winds forced officials to cancel hundreds of flights and shut down schools.  Scores of people--many of them elderly--are reported dead from the effects of the cold weather in Taiwan and Japan.

 The American East Coast is gradually recovering from a winter storm. U.S. government offices in Washington were closed for all but emergency employees as the city clears snow covered streets.  Schools in the capital and the surrounding suburbs are closed.  Washington's subway system is partially running after being closed for two days. There was limited air service returning to Washington, New York City, Baltimore and Philadelphia.

“我们此次旨在“近距离间接会谈”,将于29号开始以穿梭传话的间接会谈方式持续半年时间。”

 目前国际社会承认的利比亚议会位于该国东北部城市托布鲁克,周一,该议会以压倒性的投票反对由联合国发起成立的“全国统一”政府,这个新政府共有32名成员。爱德华·耶瑞尼安报道。

 
“利比亚目前有两个立法机构即两个议会,他们争夺着对国家的控制权。而联合国委任法耶·萨瑞作为利比亚的总理,近期成立了由32名部长组成的政府。位于托布鲁克的议会成员投票反对该政府,并在投票后鼓掌示意。该议会中的89名议员要求萨瑞在接下来的10天内组建一个相对规模较小的内阁,成员数为17人。阿拉伯媒体报道称,议员们支持萨瑞出任总理一职。同时根据在摩洛哥斯希拉特签署的《利比亚政治协议》的规定,议员们也同意建立理事会。《利比亚政治协议》得到了联合国的支持。爱德华·耶瑞尼安,开罗报道。”

周一,数枚自杀炸弹袭击了尼日利亚-喀麦隆边境城市博多。此次爆炸造成至少25人丧生,多人受伤。官方表示多达4枚自杀性炸弹在该市爆炸,该区域乃博科圣地武装分子经常袭击的目标。目前还无人声称对此负责。
 

 美国总统竞选的最新民意调查显示,在爱荷华州,民主党的希拉里·克林顿与伯尼·桑德斯几乎齐头并进。爱荷华州将在2月1日召开社区会议选举参加明年夏季提名大会的代表。共和党这边,商人唐纳德·特朗普与参议员特德·克鲁兹在爱荷华州远远领先于其他12位候选人。民意测验表明特朗普优势明显。

 周一,欧盟警察机构发布一份报告称,伊斯兰国及其他激进组织很有可能对欧洲发动大规模袭击。欧洲刑警组织认为欧洲将面临10多年来最严重的恐怖袭击威胁。报告称”恐怖组织发动的袭击主要针对软目标“,因为这将造成极大的影响,同时,欧洲刑警组织也将成立新的反恐中心,总部设在荷兰。

 一位美国高级财政部官员指控俄罗斯总统普京贪污。监视美国财政制裁的亚当.舒宾表示,克林姆林宫总统利用职务之便在损害他人的基础上为自己的朋友和同盟牟取利益。舒宾在周一晚上播出的BBC纪录片中对此事作出指控,他同时表示,美国在多年之前就已经发现了普京先生的这种贪污行为。

 一股冬季罕见的寒潮使大部分东亚地区几乎陷入瘫痪,相对同期以前较为温暖的天气情况,一些地区的温度记录跌破历史极值。由于一系列的大雪,雨夹雪和大风,官员取消了数百个航班,学校也被迫停课。在台湾和日本,许多人(大部分是老人)因为此次严寒天气的影响而失去生命。

 经历了暴风雪的美国东海岸正逐渐复苏。在华盛顿,全城忙着清理积雪,所有政府机构均关闭,只留应急人员驻守。首都及周边地区的学校均停课。在关闭了两天后,华盛顿的地铁系统部分恢复了运营。飞往华盛顿、纽约、巴尔的摩及费城的航班仍然十分有限。
