      Hagel Calls Egypt's Al-Sisi

      United States Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Sunday night phoned Egyptian army chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the Pentagon said.

      According to the Pentagon’s statement, Hagel expressed his condolences for the victims of recent bomb attacks in Egypt, and offered American assistance to investigate the incidents.

      In his call with Al-Sisi, Hagel also "stressed the role of political inclusiveness," and the two men discussed "the balance between security and freedom," spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said in the statement.
