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

President Obama says all 47 countries at an international nuclear meeting in Washington agree to secure all nuclear materials within four years. The aim is to fight the possibility of nuclear terrorism. The president called the event a "day of great progress." He said the meeting was part of a larger effort to have a world without nuclear weapons. Representatives signed an agreement that describes steps countries will take to keep terrorists from getting nuclear weapons and information. The steps include cooperation in fighting the illegal trade of nuclear equipment.

President Obama says disagreements remain between the United States and China. But he describes the tensions as relatively small. Mr. Obama spoke at the end of the nuclear meeting in Washington Tuesday. He said that China has sent representatives to the United Nations to consider new restrictions against Iran. But Mr. Obama and Chinese President Hu Jintao could not decide on a time limit for China to permit international markets to set the value of the country's money, the Yuan. Mr. Obama said he had an honest discussion with Mr. Hu about the issue. Mr. Obama said China believes this is a national issue and rejects international pressure to change its money policy.

American Defense Secretary Robert Gates says he does not expect Iran to be able to produce nuclear weapons for at least a year. Mr. Gates made the comment to reporters Tuesday on a flight to South America. He was answering a declaration by an Iranian nuclear official that the country will join the "world nuclear club" within a month. Iran's Fars news agency reports that the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization official said "no country would think about attacking Iran" after it joins the nuclear club. Fars also said the official discussed plans for Iran to expand nuclear technology for "uses other than energy and fuel production."

The ousted president of Kyrgyzstan says he is willing to resign if the country's temporary government guarantees safety for him and his family. Kurmanbek Bakiyev also said he is willing to negotiate an end to the unrest if he is guaranteed no seizure of property. He invited the temporary government to come to the south for talks. He said this would be safer than returning to the capital. The president fled the capital, Bishkek, after at least 83 people died in fighting last week between police and protesters. The temporary government says Mr. Bakiyev is no longer protected from arrest and that a criminal case has been opened against him.

You're listening to the news in VOA Special English.

Arab League delegates held an emergency meeting in Cairo Tuesday. The delegates discussed an Israeli decision to expel Palestinians in the occupied West Bank who do not have Israeli permits. Palestinian representative Barakat al-Farra appealed for immediate action to prevent Israel from carrying out the decision. Egypt's official MENA news agency reported that Mr. Farra said the Israeli action is aimed at expelling thousands of Palestinians from their homeland. He said that would violate international law.

The Israeli government is urging Israelis visiting Egypt's Sinai area to leave immediately because of what it calls a possible terrorist attack. Israel's anti-terrorism office says it has firm evidence of a plot to kidnap Israelis in the Sinai and take them to the Gaza Strip. Israeli officials called on family members to call Israelis on vacation in Sinai to ask them to return home.

Separate explosions in Iraq killed five people on Tuesday. Three of the victims died when a bomb exploded near a store that sells alcoholic drinks. That bombing wounded seven other people and took place in eastern Baghdad.

The United States has placed new restrictions on several suspected militants linked to the Somali Islamic group al-Shabab. The United States Treasury made the announcement Tuesday. It said that Somali Islamic leader Sheik Hassan Dahir Aweys is among those named in the restrictions. He said last year that he was working to unite militants under his command with al-Shabab. The move by the Treasury Department would seize any of the militant's investments in the United States.

Officials have announced that President Obama will attend a state funeral for Polish President Lech Kaczynski on Sunday. Mr. Kaczynski was killed last week in a plane crash in Russia. Mr. Obama's administration says the president will travel to Krakow to express the depth of American sympathy toward an important and trusted ally. In Warsaw, Polish lawmakers held a special meeting to honor President Kaczynski, his wife and other Polish officials killed in the crash. A Polish lawmaker told VOA that if anything good came out of the tragedy, it is seeing people and politicians uniting instead of paying attention to divisions.

President Obama's wife Michelle made a brief visit to Haiti Tuesday. Ms. Obama visited Port-au-Prince with Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden. Their visit had not been announced earlier. The president's wife is on her way to Mexico as part of her first official trip to a foreign country without her husband. The Obama administration says her visit to Haiti is meant to draw attention to America's promise to help Haiti recover from a major earthquake in January. The quake is thought to have killed at least 217,000 people. More than a million others are without homes. Ms. Obama described the damage she saw as powerful.

And now briefly, here again is the major news of the hour.

President Obama says all 47 countries at a nuclear meeting in Washington agree to secure all nuclear materials within four years. American Defense Secretary Robert Gates says he does not expect Iran to be able to produce nuclear weapons for at least a year. And the ousted president of Kyrgyzstan says he is willing to resign if the country's temporary government guarantees safety for him and his family.

That's the news in VOA Special English, coming your way from Washington.
