    I agree with Florentia that the government would announce important news.
    A government declares or proclaims official acts.
    See these examples of their use in current media.
    If you want to ask about any of these other sentences, please start a new thread. Be careful to name the source of any quoted sentence.

    The verbs have other uses; I am commenting only on their likely use in the context you have given us.
    These previous threads explain the differences in other contexts.
