This was announced by President Obama at a joint press conference in Berlin with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Nov. 17, Censor.NET reports.
"Of course, we discussed our commitment to meeting shared security challenges -- from countering cyber threats to ensuring that Iran continues to live up to the terms of the Iran nuclear deal. I commended Angela for her leadership, along with President Hollande, in working to resolve the conflict in Ukraine," Obama said.
"We continued to stand with the people of Ukraine and for the basic principle that nations have a right to determine their own destiny. And we discussed the importance of maintaining sanctions until Russia fully complies with the Minsk agreement," the U.S. president said.
