London, July 11 (ANI): US Vice-President Joe Biden recently joked about the Russian spy scandal on The Tonight Show with comedian Jay Leno.
With reference to one of 10 agents sent back to Russia, Leno asked Biden: "Do we have any spies that hot?"
Biden responded: "It wasn't my idea to send her back."
He also defended only getting four spies released by Moscow for the 10 that they returned.
The US and Russia made a spy swap on Friday on airport tarmac in Vienna.
Leno showed Biden a photo of 28-year old Anna Chapman, one of the alleged spies, reports the BBC.
In response to Leno's questioning, Biden, in a mock-serious tone, told him: "Let me be clear. It wasn't my idea to send her back."
Leno also asked him why the US was only getting four people in return for the 10 accused spies they were letting go, saying it did not "seem fair".
Biden responded: "We got back four really good ones".
"And the 10, they'd been here a long time, but they hadn't done much," he added. (ANI)
