Nearly 300 innocent lives were taken -- men, women, children, infants -- who had nothing to do with the crisis in Ukraine.&nbsp; Their deaths are an outrage of unspeakable proportions.</p> <p class="p1">We know at least one American citizen, Quinn Lucas Schansman, was killed.&nbsp; Our thoughts and prayers are with his family for this terrible loss.</p> <p class="p1">Yesterday, I spoke with the leaders of Ukraine, Malaysia, and the Netherlands.&nbsp; I told them that our thoughts and prayers are with all the families and that the American people stand with them during this difficult time.&nbsp; Later today, I&rsquo;ll be speaking to Prime Minister Abbott of Australia, which also suffered a terrible loss.</p> <p class="p2">By far, the country that lost the most people on board the plane was the Netherlands.&nbsp; From the days of our founding, the Dutch have been close friends and stalwart allies of the United States of America.&nbsp; And today, I want the Dutch people to know that we stand with you, shoulder to shoulder, in our grief and in our absolute determination to get to the bottom of what happened.</p> </blockquote> <p><a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/07/18/president-obama-speaks-malaysian-airlines-flight-mh17-russia-and-ukraine-and-situati" target="_blank">read more</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-link field-field-url"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Story URL:&nbsp;</div> <a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/07/18/president-obama-speaks-malaysian-airlines-flight-mh17-russia-and-ukraine-and-situati" target="_blank">http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2014/07/18/president-obama-speaks-malaysian-airli...</a> </div> </div> </div> <a href= amsterdam Amsterdam Australia Australia Barack Obama Chuck Kennedy David Hudson eastern Ukraine Europe and Eurasia Foreign Policy Gaza Israel Malaysia Malaysia Middle East And North Africa Netanyahu Netherlands Netherlands Obama Official putin Quinn Lucas Schansman Russia Russia South and Central Asia Tel Aviv The President Ukraine Ukraine United States United States White House Fri, 18 Jul 2014 17:58:02 +0000 feed 308576 at http://newsmotion.org
