Vice President Joe Biden said Saturday that the United States will ask other countries to take in inmates from its Guantanamo Bay prison.

"As we seek a lasting framework for our common struggle against extremism, we will have to work cooperatively with nations around the world -- and we will need your help," Biden told the the international security conference in Munich, southern Germany.

"For example, we will ask others to take responsibility for some of those now at Guantanamo, as we determine to close it."
