President Barack Obama, right, smiles after a group of children waved flags and flowers to cheer him during a welcome ceremony with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China Wednesday, Nov. 12, 2014.

The leaders of the United States and China say they have reached an agreement to reduce pollution linked to climate change. President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping made the announcement during a joint news conference in Beijing.

Companies in the United States and China produce more carbon dioxide than those in any other country. Studies have linked rising levels of the gas to rising temperatures on Earth's surface.

Mr. Obama said the U.S. agreed to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 26 to 28 percent by 2025. Mr. Xi said carbon dioxide emissions in China would stop rising by about 2030. That is the first time that China has set such a date.

The Ukrainian defense minister says he has ordered his country's forces to prepare for a possible attack by pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine. Ukraine's defense minister told a government meeting on Wednesday that additional forces have joined the separatists.

On September 5th, the rebels and Ukraine's government agreed to a cease-fire. But there have been clashes in eastern Ukraine since then.

North Atlantic Treaty Organization officials say they have seen Russian military equipment entering eastern Ukraine in the past two days. The equipment is said to include Russian tanks and artillery.

Syrian activists say seven weeks of American-led air strikes have killed at least 860 people in Syria. They say most of the dead were Islamic State militants.

On Wednesday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the number of dead could be much higher. The group said at least 50 civilians were among those killed in the attacks.
