Obama: "Russia stands alone"

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: After meeting with leaders of the EU in Belgium, U.S. President Barack Obama said that, "Russia stands alone," after it annexed Crimea. Obama said that if Russia continues on its current course it will face more sanctions. He also said that there is still a chance for a diplomatic solution. Obama began his visit to Belgium by visiting the Flanders Field American war cemetery, visiting the graves of some of the 368 U.S. service members, most killed during World War One. His visit and the symbolism of trans-Atlantic unity had added resonance at a time when tensions in Europe are running high because of Russia's military occupation and annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region.
