1. According to The Associated Press, North Korea vowed to cancel the 1953 cease-fire that ended the Korean War, citing a U.S.-led push for punishing U.N. sanctions over its recent nuclear test and ongoing U.S.-South Korean joint military drills. Without elaborating, the Korean People's Army also warned of "surgical strikes" meant to unify the divided Korean Peninsula and of using a "precision nuclear striking tool."
2. According to The Associated Press, China defended its booming military spending this week saying that vast investments in the armed forces have contributed to global peace and stability, despite concerns among the U.S. and Beijing's Asian neighbors over sharpening territorial disputes. Chinese defense spending has grown substantially each year for more than two decades, and last year rose 11.2 percent to $106.4 billion. Only the United States spends more on defense.
3. According to The Associated Press, Iran and Syria condemned a U.S. plan to assist rebels fighting to topple President Bashar Assad and signaled that the Syrian leader intends to stay in power at least until the 2014 presidential elections. The remarks came against the backdrop of a strategic victory for the regime as the military regained control over a string of villages along a key highway to open a potential supply route in Syria's heavily contested north.
4. According to The Epoch Times, a minor earthquake struck Rome and nearby areas, including the resort home of the pope emeritus, Cas-tel Gan-dol-fo, just three days after Benedict retired there.

5. According to The Jerusalem Post, Palestinian Authority President Mah-moud Ab-bas met in Saudi Arabia with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and discussed the latest regional developments.

An official quoted Abbas as saying that unless Israel met these two conditions, the Palestinian Authority leadership would not be able to resume the stalled peace talks.
