Israel's Barak in US for talks amid Egypt crisis

Israel's Defense Minister Ehud Barak met US President Barack Obama's most senior national security aides Wednesday over Egypt dominating the foreign policy.

Barak sat down with a high-powered line up of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Obama's national security advisor Tom Donilon, the White House said in a statement.

"Mr Donilon, Secretary Clinton and Secretary Gates discussed with Minister Barak the latest developments in Egypt, the need to move forward on Middle East peace," and other issues including Iran's nuclear drive, the statement said.

The Obama team also repeated the frequently voiced "unshakeable" US commitment to Israel's security, but the statement gave few concrete details of exactly what was discussed on Egypt.
