WASHINGTON, D.C.: President Barack Obama and his Polish counterpart Bronislaw Komorowski spoke Monday (Tuesday in Manila) about “the importance of raising defense spending” by the European members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the White House said, in a statement calling for “trans-Atlantic solidarity.” The statement followed talks in which the two leaders discussed the downing last week of an Malaysia Air jetliner by Russian backed rebels in Ukraine. “This afternoon, President Obama spoke with Polish President Komorowski to discuss the situation in Ukraine and the upcoming NATO Summit in Wales,” the statement said.
