WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is thanking congressional leaders for approving aid for Ukraine, but urging them to go further by adopting changes to the International Monetary Fund.
Obama met Thursday in the Oval Office with House Speaker John Boehner, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. The leaders left the White House without speaking to reporters.
The White House says Obama briefed the leaders on his recent trip to Europe and Saudi Arabia.
Obama told the lawmakers the U.S. will continue leading a global effort to support Ukraine and isolate Russia for violating Ukraine's sovereignty. Obama on Thursday signed a $1 billion loan guarantee package for Ukraine.
The leaders also discussed nuclear security, Obama's meeting with the pope and the U.S.-Saudi relations.
