Obama Continues Telephone Outreach On Ukraine

Posted: Updated:

KEY LARGO, Fla. (AP) - The White House says President Barack Obama is continuing his telephone outreach on Ukraine during his Florida vacation.
    
The president spoke individually Saturday with British Prime Minister David Cameron, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and French President Francois Hollande (frahn-SWAH' oh-LAWND').
    
Obama also held a conference call with the presidents of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
    
The White House says the leaders agreed that Russia must pull its military forces in Ukraine's strategic Crimea peninsula back to bases it has there, allow access for international observers and human rights monitors and form a contact group to begin holding direct talks between Ukraine and Russia to reduce tensions in the region.
    
Russian forces invaded the strategic Crimea peninsula of Ukraine a week ago, a move that the U.S. and its allies say violated international law. Russian President Vladimir Putin says he has the right to protect Russian interests in Crimea.
