During a joint press conference with UK Prime Minister David Cameron, US President Barack Obama called for a resolution to the war in Ukraine.
“We have to continue to invest in NATO so that we can meet our overseas commitments, from Afghanistan to the Aegean. We have to resolve the conflict in the Ukraine and reassure allies who are rightly concerned about Russian aggression,” the US President stated.
Obama also stressed that all NATO member states need to work towards contributing more of their budget to defense.
“All NATO allies should aim for the NATO target of spending 2 percent of their GDP on defense- something that David [Cameron] has made sure happens here in the UK to meet that standard,” Obama said.
