Time now for a look through the international headlines we're following this Friday morning. For that, we turn to our Eunice Kim, at the NewsCenter. Good morning, Eunice. (Good morning, Mark.)
The first day of the NATO summit has wrapped in Wales where world leaders are discussing a number of conflicts. But eyes are on this ceasefire in-the-works for Ukraine?

That's right, Mark. On the sidelines of the summit meetings, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said he was cautiously optimistic about a truce to end the five-month war in his country's east.
He and the leader of pro-Russian rebels had agreed that they were ready to stop fighting, as early as Friday.
Eyes will be on a Friday meetingin Minsk between envoys from Ukraine, Russia and Europe's OSCE security watchdog where that peace deal is to be discussed. //
This as NATO members, on the first day of their 2-day summit, said they stood with Ukraine and called on Moscow "to pull back its troops" from Ukraine and end the "illegal" annexation of Crimea.//
More sanctions against Russia are set to be announced targeting its defense industry, state-owned banks and associates of President Vladimir Putin.
