'A long haul' for Ukraine's counter-offensive - Biden

STORY: Biden spoke to reporters on Tuesday (13 September) while in his home state of Delaware to vote in a primary.

He was asked about Kyiv's counteroffensive in southern Ukraine, where recent reports say vast swathes of land has been retaken from Russian troops.

Biden said significant progress was made, but "hard to tell" if Ukraine has reached a turning point in its war with Russia.

Biden also said the stock market, which fell sharply on Tuesday on inflation concerns, does not necessarily reflect the overall state of the economy.
