U.S. President Barack Obama is to hold a rare
press conference Friday in which he is expected to make his first
public comments on the dispute with Russia.
Obama announced plans for the news conference late Thursday afternoon, after a meeting with Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras at the White House.
When the leaders reappeared in the Oval Office with the White House press pool, Obama waved off questions about his cancellation of the Moscow summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
"Guys, I'm going to be having a press conference tomorrow, so why don't you ask that question tomorrow," he said.
Other issues that could come up include the decision to close US embassies for this week across North Africa and in East Africa over terrorism alerts.
