It is 00:30 universal time and here is the news in Special English.

President Obama says American policy in Afghanistan will remain the same even with a change in the top General leading the war there. President Obama spoke at a news conference with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Thursday. He said he is urging a unity of purpose in Afghanistan. He said he is sure General David Petraeus understands the policy in Afghanistan since he helped to shape it.

The United States Senate has approved additional restrictions to punish Iran for its nuclear activities. The restrictions would ban from American markets, companies that sell processed petroleum products to Iran. The House representatives is debating a similar measure. It could vote as early as next week. Both the Senate and House must approve the bill. On Thursday, Iran's president said his country will announce conditions for nuclear talks with world powers next week. Iran's government-run news agency reported the comments of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. He said he would bring fresh methodology to future talks with European countries.

Israel's Likud Party(利库德集团,以色列执政党)has approved restarting settlement building in East Jerusalem and West Bank after the current ban ends in September. Israeli media report that Likud Party Chairman, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu did not attend the meeting. Mr. Netanyahu placed a ten-month halt to new building in the areas in November. He was answering American demands to stop settlement expansion as part of efforts to restart peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. On July sixth, Mr. Netanyahu will meet President Obama in Washington.

Kurdish rebels killed two soldiers and a civilian in an attack in eastern Turkey late Thursday. Five others are reported wounded. The Turkish army blamed separatists from the Kurdistan Workers Party or PKK for the attack in eastern Elazig province. Earlier Thursday, Turkish lawyers charged nine people linked to Tuesday's bomb attack in Istanbul. A Turkish court placed three suspects under arrest. Turkey's government-run news agency Anatolia says the court release the other suspects until their trial.

Rescue workers in Lebanon have found one of three workers trapped inside a factory that collapsed Thursday. Officials say they had found a Lebanese worker trapped in the building in the industrial Zouk Mosbeh neighborhood, north of the capital Beirut. Civil defense workers are digging through the wreckage in search of two Indian nationals who are still missing.

You are listening to the news in VOA Special English.

Canadian officials say they arrested a man after finding weapons and dangerous materials in a car near the area of a planned Group of Twenty meeting. The meeting of leaders of the twenty biggest economies will open in Toronto Saturday. Police officials say the man was arrested outside a hotel. The security area has been set up surrounding the meeting place. Police say no one was injured.

President Obama says he and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev have succeeded in resetting relations between their nations. He said he feels that Russia is, in his words "a solid and reliable partner". Mr. Obama said he would push for discussions on Russia's entry into the World Trade Organization. He said the 90-95% of the issues regarding Russian WTO membership have been resolved. But he added that the remaining issues are difficult. President Obama said he hopes they can be solved later this year.

A judge has denied a request by the Obama administration to delay a ruling to permit deepwater oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. Last month, the administration ordered a six-month suspension of drilling for new deepwater wells. But on Tuesday, federal judge Martin Feldman blocked the government from enforcing the ban. He said the government was suggesting that all deepwater oil rigs were in danger because one exploded. The explosion in late April caused a huge spill that crews are still working to fully contain. The government can still appeal the judge's order.

A top United Nations official is warning that violence could restart in southern Kyrgyzstan. Already an estimated two thousand people have been killed in ethnic clashes in the area. UN official on political issues, Oscar Fernandez Taranco spoke to the Security Council Thursday. Mr. Fernandez said although the cities have calmed, measures should be taken to prevent ethic violence. He noted international calls for an investigation into what casued the ethnic violence. Also Thursday, the head of Kyrgyzstan's security service accused ousted Kyrgyz President Kurmanbek Bakiyev of planning with the Taliban and other Islamist groups to cause the unrest.

Finally this news: June 25th is the sixtieth anniversary of the start of the Korean War. Millions of people on both sides were killed including hundreds of thousands of civilians before hostilities ended three years later in 1953. More than thirty five thousand American soldiers were killed. Although the two Koreas are not fighting, they remain technically at war since they did not sign a peace treaty. Tensions between the two countries have increased in recent months after a South Korean warship sank killing forty six sailors. An international investigation says North Korea sank the ship. But North Korea denies the charge.

And now briefly, here again is the major news of the hour read in VOA Special English.

President Obama says American policy in Afghanistan will remain the same even with a change in the top General leading the war there. The United States Senate has approved additional restrictions to punish Iran for its nuclear activities. And Israel' Likud Party has approved restarting settlement building in East Jerusalem and the West Bank in September.

That's the news in VOA Special English coming to you from Washington.
