WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama said on Friday a recession in Europe would affect the pace of the US recovery, and said Washington is being careful not to "scold" Europe or tell European leaders what to do.

"They can absorb some of the shocks that come from across the Atlantic," Obama told reporters.
