WASHINGTON — Vice President Joe Biden is planning a trip next month to Ukraine, Morocco and Turkey.

The White House says Biden will be traveling abroad the week of Nov. 17. He plans to lead the U.S. delegation to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, being held this year in Marrakesh, Morocco.

Biden also plans to meet in Turkey with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan (REH'-jehp TY'-ihp UR'-doh-wahn) as well as the country's prime minister and other individuals. U.S. ties with Turkey have been strained recently as the U.S. pushed Turkey to do more to counter the Islamic State group in neighboring Syria.

Biden will also meet in Ukraine with President Petro Poroshenko, who took office earlier this year. The White House says Biden discussed the upcoming trip with Poroshenko during a phone call Monday.
