Clinton Urges Egypt to Communicate With Israel on Sinai Movements
Washington Post/AP – The Obama administration is pressing Egypt to be transparent with Israel about its military movements in the Sinai as it cracks down on violence in the lawless desert area.
The State Department said Thursday that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton spoke by phone with Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohamed Kamel Amr about the matter on Wednesday. It said the call was part of U.S. discussions with both Israeli and Egyptian officials to keep communications lines open. However, Clinton did not make a similar call to Israel.
