U.S. Vice President Joe Biden says that he spends longer periods of time on the telephone with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko than with his own wife.

"It is true I've only been here four times in two years. But I think we may have logged close to 1,000 hours on the telephone. I think I tend to be more in direct conversation for longer periods of time with the president than with my wife. I think they both regret that. But it is important," he said at a joint briefing in Kyiv on Monday.
