CAIRO - The top US military officer met Egypt's ruling generals in Cairo on Saturday and discussed the case of US pro-democracy activists charged in an investigation that has strained ties between Cairo and Washington.

General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was the first senior US official to visit Cairo since the charges were brought against 43 foreign and Egyptian activists following a probe into civil society groups.

Dempsey met Field Marshal Mohamed Hussein Tantawi and chief of staff General Sami Anan during meetings at the defense ministry in Cairo.

"They discussed a wide range of issues related to the long-standing security relationship between our two countries, including the issue involving US NGOs," Colonel David Lapan, a spokesman for Dempsey, told Reuters in a statement.
