CAIRO - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will urge Egypt's civilian and military leaders to work together to complete a full transition to democratic rule, US officials said on Saturday.

"She is going to say: 'You have to stick with it. You have to keep going'," a senior US official told reporters.

"She will encourage [Field Marshal Hussein] Tantawi, as she will encourage [Egyptian President Mohamed] Mursi, and civil society, to engage in that dialogue and to avoid the kinds of confrontation that could potentially lead to the transition veering off track."

Clinton is due to meet during a trip to Cairo with Mursi, who was sworn in as Egypt's new head of state on June 30, and Tantawi, head of the powerful council of army generals that steered the post-Hosni Mubarak transition.
