Great Britain and the U.S. will continue to "put diplomatic pressure on Russia to resolve the crisis in Ukraine."
Prime Minister David Cameron and U.S. President Barack Obama said this in a joint interview with The Times newspaper published on Thursday.
"If we allow such fundamental breaches of international law [Russia's aggressive actions in Ukraine] to go unchecked, we will all suffer from the instability that would follow. Our strong and united response has sent an unmistakable message that the international community will not stand by as Russia attempts to destabilize Ukraine," Cameron and Obama said.
The leaders of Britain and the U.S. expressed their intention to continue providing Kiev with assistance to strengthen the economy and democracy. In addition, they noted that "security and prosperity go hand in hand", saying that the fight against terrorism is a priority task.
