Washington - Vice President Joe Biden met at the White House with Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga on Tuesday for talks on change in Kenya, Sudan and Somalia.

The two also addressed major issues in Africa.

Biden and Odinga "also discussed the need to reinvigorate efforts on Sudan, particularly on Abyei and Darfur, to secure a lasting peace", the White House said.
