WASHINGTON - Egyptian army chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi told the United States on Saturday that the new army-installed Egyptian leadership was working toward political reconciliation following the military overthrow of the president on July 3, the Pentagon said on Saturday.

Sisi made the comments during a telephone conversation with US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, in which the Pentagon chief expressed concern about violence in Egypt after the military toppled Islamist President Mohamed Morsi.Hagel urged Sisi to support an inclusive political process, Pentagon spokesman George Little said.



"General al-Sisi assured Secretary Hagel that Egyptian authorities were working toward a process of political reconciliation," Little said.

"General al-Sisi affirmed to Secretary Hagel that Egypt's leadership remains committed to the political roadmap leading to elections and the formation of a constitution in Egypt."
