WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States urged Ukraine's parliament on Monday to quickly approve a new cabinet that backed political and economic reforms, especially a loan program backed by the International Monetary Fund.

"We believe it is important that the Rada approve as soon as possible a new cabinet that is committed to implementing needed reforms, in particular those recommended by the IMF," State Department spokesman Mark Toner told a news briefing following the resignation of Ukraine's Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk.
