Obama delays Ukraine arms decision amid diplomatic whirlwind

0

WASHINGTON D.C.: US President Barack Obama on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) agreed to hold off a controversial decision on sending arms to Ukraine until German-led efforts to broker a ceasefire with Russia are given a chance. Hosting Chancellor Angela Merkel at the White House, Obama said he hoped she could reach a deal with Russian President Vladimir Putin to end 10 months of bloodshed in eastern Ukraine, but warned more punitive measures are in the pipeline if that fails.
