Hello, this is David Austin with the BBC News. People are voting in Sweden's general election where an anti-immigration party is vying to win a pivotal role in a country long seen as a bastion of liberal values. The populist Sweden Democrats are on course to win at least 1/5 of the vote and become the second biggest party. The support for the centre-left and centre-right wanes. The BBC's Gavin Lee who's in Stockholm says political debate during the election has been dominated by migration. Look back to 2015, 163,000 migrants entering the country, more per capita than any other EU state. By November that year, the government put temporary restrictive border measures in place. Those temporary measures are still there in a supposedly Schengen passport-free zone of Europe. And the other parties talk about the Sweden Democrats, this fear factor about the immigration conflating with a spiking crime this year. But ultimately a lot of the conversation, the newspapers, you talk to people on the street, you know migration is the real central theme here.
North Korea has held a military parade to mark its 70th anniversary without displaying intercontinental ballistic missiles. Analysts have been watching the parade for clues about North Korea's professed commitment to denuclearization. Our correspondent in Seoul, Laura Bicker has more details. It was a tone down, a softer tone with colorful floats, including engineers, students, nurses, construction workers, which would fit with Kim Jong-un's recent focus, which is the economy. So it was a huge parade which would be in line with the 70th anniversary celebration and they were at tens of thousands of goose stepping soldiers all paying their tribute to Kim Jong-un.
The New York Times is reporting that officials from the Trump administration have held secret meetings with rebellious Venezuelan military officers over the last year to discuss their plans to oust President Nicolas Maduro but decided against a coup. Irian Skippers reports. The White House has not denied the talks have taken place and the news that US officials have been willing to discuss such plans with Venezuelan officers could prove to be damaging for the US given its long history of intervention in Latin America. But this time it appears Washington has refused to lend material support to rebellious officers. The Trump administration has been highly critical of the government of President Maduro. In August last year, President Trump said he did not rule out a military option in Venezuela, but for now, the US government says it prefers a peaceful and orderly return to democracy. World news from the BBC.

大家好，我是大卫·奥斯汀，欢迎收听BBC新闻。瑞典人民正在为大选投票，反移民政党希望能够起到关键作用，长期以来瑞典被看成是自由价值的捍卫者 。民粹主义政党瑞典民主党预计将赢得五分之一选票，随着中左派和中右派支持率的减弱，它或将成为国内第二大党派 。BBC记者盖文·李正在斯德哥尔摩，他称选举辩论以移民问题为主 。回顾2015年，十六万三千名移民入境，使得瑞典的人均难民数居欧盟国家首位 。截止到那年的12月份，政府下令实施暂时的入境限制措施 。这些暂时性的措施据说还在申根免护照区实行 。其他政党也在讨论瑞典民主党，谈及移民问题和今年不断上升的犯罪率，这一让人恐惧的因素 。但通过对话，报纸和街边采访你就发现，移民问题仍是辩论的主题 。

《纽约时报》报道称特朗普政府官员去年一直在进行秘密会谈，会谈对象是委内瑞拉反叛军官，讨论罢黜总统马杜罗，但反对发动政变，以下是伊里安·斯奇普斯的报道。白宫方面并没有否认进行过秘密会谈，美官员愿意与委官员讨论该计划，此消息或对美国造成不良后果，鉴于美国长期以来一直干涉拉丁美洲问题 。但是这次，事实证明美国拒绝了向反对军提供物质支持 。特朗普政府对马杜罗政府非常不满 。在去年8月，特朗普表示他不排除对委内瑞拉采取军事手段，但是现在，美国政府表示更倾向于通过和平有序的手段为委内瑞拉带来民主 。BBC国际新闻 。
