Ukraine Summit Is Unsuccessful; U.S. Contemplates Next Steps

"German Chancellor Angela Merkel said it’s “uncertain” whether this weekend’s diplomacy will settle the 10-month-old Ukraine conflict after talks in Moscow didn’t yield a breakthrough early Saturday."

“It is uncertain whether this will be successful,” Merkel said in Munich today after she and French President Francois Hollande held an inconclusive meeting at the Kremlin with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“But in my view and in the view of the French president, it’s at least worth making an attempt,” she said. 

Merkel, Hollande, Putin and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko plan a conference call tomorrow to discuss a potential settlement.

Poroshenko took a bow to a crowd of international diplomats at the Munich Security Conference when Merkel hailed his commitment to ending the conflict.
