WASHINGTON  — 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.

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.
