US President Barack Obama is welcoming the Egyptian military's commitment to a democratic civilian transition and to the country's international obligations, most notably its peace treaty with Israel.
The White House said Saturday Obama discussed the situation in Egypt during calls to British Prime Minister David Cameron, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and King Abdullah of Jordan, who's facing protests in his own country.

Editor's Notes: ‘Maybe this is the moment
to put our trust in freedom'
The White House said Obama told the leaders the US will provide any support requested by the Egyptian people as they pursue an orderly transition to democracy.
On Friday, Obama pledged friendship
and assistance to the Egyptian people after the dawn of a new political
era in Cairo, stressing the importance of a fully democratic and
inclusive power taking the reins of government.
“The United States will continue to be a friend and partner to Egypt. We
stand ready to provide whatever assistance is necessary -- and asked
for -- to pursue a credible transition to a democracy,” Obama said at
the White House Friday, hours after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak
stepped down after days of massive protests pushed him to leave office
and place the government in control of a military council. "By stepping
down," Obama added, "President Mubarak responded to the Egyptian
people’s hunger for change. But this is not the end of Egypt’s
transition. It’s a beginning."
