Obama, Clinton Meet at White House Over Developments in Egypt

February 4, 2011

U.S. President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and senior national security advisors held a meeting at the White House on Tuesday afternoon.

The content of the meeting is not immediately known, but the United States is obviously watching in the closest way the rapid development of the situation in Egypt which is vital to U.S. interests in the region.

The United States has been calling for "orderly transition" in Egypt, but fell short of explicitly, at least in public, asking Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to end his 30-year rule.
