Biden meets Baltic leaders, pledges support

U.S. Vice President Biden addresses to media after meeting Polish President Komorowski in WarsawBy Roberta Rampton VILNIUS (Reuters) – U.S. Vice President Joe Biden met with leaders of Lithuania and Latvia on Wednesday, part of a quick trip to reassure Baltic allies worried about what an emboldened, aggressive Russia might mean for their nations. The nations have condemned Russian President Vladimir Putin for moving to annex Ukraine’s Crimea, and the White House has said it is preparing a fresh round of sanctions in response. Biden’s visit is intended to reassure nations like Poland and the Baltics that the United States will live up to its NATO pledge to protect allies under attack. Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland are all members of both the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization – unlike Ukraine.
