Obama and Merkel Delay Decision on Lethal Aid to Ukraine

Hosted by

After meeting with President Obama at the White House today, German Chancellor Angela Merkel repeated her stand against giving Ukraine weapons to use against pro-Russian separatists. However, she assured, "No matter what we decide, the alliance between US and Europe will continue to stand and be solid even if on certain issues we don't always agree." The President, who said he's not yet made a decision about arming Ukraine, said he'd "consulted not just with Angela but will be consulting other leaders about this issue." Karen Donfried is President of the German Marshal Fund, a think-tank on transatlantic relations.
