Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, met with top Egyptian defense officials in Cairo Saturday to discuss how the U.S. and Egypt can increase their collaboration to address regional threats, DoD News reported Tuesday.

Jim Garamone writes Dunford discussed U.S.-Egypt military cooperation with Lt. Gen. Mahmoud Hegazy, the Egyptian defense chief, during his trip to Cairo.

“Although we have a broader relationship between our two countries that is bigger than security, the military-to-military relationship can be a foundation,” Dunford noted.

He flew to London Tuesday to discuss ongoing campaigns against the Islamic State militant organization with British Chief of Defense Staff Gen. Nicholas Houghton and other military leaders, Garamone wrote in a subsequent report.

The report said he aims to collaborate with the U.S.’ coalition partners to develop and implement a transregional framework to counter violent extremism.
