ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Barack Obama called NATO the "cornerstone for global security" after meeting with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg in the Oval Office of the White House on Tuesday, during which the President said the two discussed the situation in Ukraine and the "increasingly aggressive posture that Russia has taken."
