Biden, Putin end 2-hour video call

WASHINGTON 

A virtual call between the presidents of the US and Russia on Tuesday ended after two hours and one minute, according to the White House.

Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin exchanged greeting in opening remarks.

"Greetings, Mr. President!" said Putin.

"Hello, good evening! Good to see you again. Unfortunately last time we didn't get to see one other at the G20. I hope next time we do it, we meet in person," Biden responded.

The call came amid reports that Russia is amassing thousands of troops near Ukraine’s border.

Earlier, the White House said Biden would reaffirm the US' support for "the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine."

No statement has been issued as to the content of the talks at the time of publication.
