Merkel persuades Obama not to give weapon to Ukraine

Last month, the US President Barack Obama agreed with the idea not to give lethal defensive weapons to Ukraine.

This has been announced by the German Ambassador to the US, Peter Wittig in an interview with the Associated Press.

After a meeting with the German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the White House, the US President agreed “to give some space for diplomatic and political efforts.”

“The two leaders exchanged views on the issue and there was a unity not to deliver lethal defensive weapon now,” – announced the diplomat.

There is still a debate at the Obama’s administration of whether to provide lethal weapons to Ukraine because of the conflict in the Donbas.

After the meeting with the German Chancellor, Obama said that “the possibility of lethal defense weapons supplies is one of the options under consideration,” but added that “the decision is still pending.”

Last week, US Congressmen have called on Obama to hurry up with the supply of weapons to Ukraine. In turn, Russia urged Ukraine and the US “to think about the consequences of the “military cooperation.”
