Despite nationwide rioting in the Ukraine, Vice President Joe Biden still insists that the country has "no emergency" problems.
According to Channel NewsAsia, "US Vice President Joe Biden urged Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych on Monday to pull back riot police and work with the opposition on "immediate measures" to de-escalate tensions between the government and protesters."
Biden is calling for the Ukrainian government not to declare a state of emergency
As reported by Channel NewsAsia, "In a phone call, Biden -- "underscoring that no time should be lost" -- also warned that "declaring a state of emergency or enacting other harsh security measures would further inflame the situation and close the space for a peaceful resolution," according to a White House statement."
Biden believes that the Ukrainian protestors will stop resorting to violence if the riot police don't try to arrest them.
