U.S. supports Egypt’s democratic transition: Panetta

CAIRO, July 31 (Xinhua) — U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta reiterated here on Tuesday Washington supported legitimate peaceful transition to democratic rule in Egypt in his talks with Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.

“The U.S. supported strongly a democratic future in Egypt,” Panetta told reporters. He noted the United States will do what it has promised to help the Egyptians to find more jobs and improve its economy and expand the welfare with economic aids.

He also held talks with Hussein Tantawi, chief of the Egyptian Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, asserting the importance of Egypt-U.S. relations in the military field, which promoted the regional stability for more than 30 years.

This is another senior U.S. official to visit Egypt after Morsi took office in the most populous Arab nation on June 30. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited Egypt in mid-July.

During her visit, Clinton reiterated the one-billion-dollar debt relief for Egypt, which was announced by the Obama administration last year.

She said the U.S. would grant Egypt 250 million dollars of trade credit guarantees and establish an investment fund worth 60 million dollars. A high-level U.S. delegation will visit Cairo in September to discuss business and trade cooperation.

The United States has expressed its willingness to develop a new partnership with Egypt on the basis of mutual respect and common interests.
