I'm Sarah Williams from the VOA News Center in Washington.

 

Fidel Castro has resigned as Cuba's president, ending his nearly 50-year rule of the Caribbean nation. VOA Sean Maroney reports with details from Washington.

 

The newspaper Granma quotes Mr. Castro as saying he will not aspire to nor accept another term as president when the country's newly elected National Assembly meets Sunday. Fidel Castro has not appeared in public since undergoing intestinal surgery in July 2006. Since then, his brother Raul has served as acting president. As the 81-year-old leader ages, rumors have circulated about the state of his health. Since ceding power to his brother, Mr. Castro has been seen in photographs and videos. He has not had any public appearances. Mr. Castro said in a December letter that he did not want to stay in power forever. He wrote that his duty is not to hold on to positions or block the path of younger people, but to share the experiences and ideas from his life. The Cuban leader seized power in a 1959 revolution against dictator Fulgencio Batista. Sean Maroney, VOA News, Washington.

 

The European Union says it is willing to engage in a constructive political dialogue with Cuba after the announcement of Mr. Castro's retirement. John Clancy, a spokesman for EU Development Commissioner Louis Michel, told reporters in Brussels today that the EU wants Cuba to make a peaceful transition to democracy. He said the EU aims to encourage Cuba to respect human rights and fundamental freedoms. Relations between Cuba and the EU have been strained since 2003 when Cuban authorities arrested 75 dissidents.

 

In the US state of Florida, expatriate Cubans in Miami's Little Havana community showed mixed reactions to the news this morning. Some motorists honked their horns, but there were no boisterous celebrations.

 

Pakistan's ruling party has conceded defeat in Monday's parliamentary elections in which voters rejected President Pervez Musharraf's political allies in favor of opposition parties. The chairman of the Pakistan Muslim League-Q party, told reporters today that members of his party accept the results and are prepared to sit on opposition benches in parliament. Early results show slain opposition leader Benazir Butto's Pakistan People's Party winning the most seats in the 342-member National Assembly so far. Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League is in second. Final results are expected late today. Mr. Sharif said  he plans to meet with Ms. Butto's husband Asif Ali Zardari - now the leader of the PPP on Thursday to discuss forming a new government. He urged President Musharraf to accept the verdict of the people and step down. The results so far also show Islamic Party is failing badly in Pakistan's tribal region with the secular Awami National Party holding a lead in the northwest frontier province. US Senator John Kerry, who is in Pakistan as part of a team of international election observers, said the parliamentary vote met the basic threshold of credibility and legitimacy.

 

The United Nations Refugee Agency says it has withdrawn a team caring for refugees along the Chad-Sudan border because of the aerial bombing in Sudan's war-torn Darfur region. The agency says the workers withdrew from the Berac area and far-eastern Chad after bombing raised late Monday and early today in West Darfur. A spokeswoman Jennifer Pagonis says the team will return immediately when the situation calms down. Pagonis quotes Darfur refugees who crossed the border into Chad late Monday, as saying the aerial bombing targeted a camp for displaced people in West Darfur.

 

President Bush is calling on all nations to increase efforts to end the ethnic killing in Sudan's war-torn Darfur region. Mr. Bush announced today in Rwanda the availability of 100 million dollars to help train and equip African peacekeepers heading to Darfur. President Bush, who calls the Dafur killings genocide, is in the small African country of Rwanda as part of his 5-nation tour of the continent. Mr. Bush visited a memorial to the 1994 genocide of Tutsis by Hutu extremists. "It's a moving place. It can't help but shake your emotions to their very foundation." The president and his wife, Laura, are scheduled to dedicate the new US Embassy in Kigali during the visit to Rwanda.
