WASHINGTON, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama has called his Libyan and Egyptian counterparts respectively to discuss security cooperation following the eruption of violent anti-American protests in the two countries in the past days, the White House said in a statement released early Thursday.

During his first phone talk with Libyan President Mohammed Maqrif Wednesday evening since the latter's election last month, Obama thanked Maqrif for extending his condolences for the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other U.S. diplomats who were killed in attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on Tuesday.

"He also expressed appreciation for the cooperation we have received from the Libyan government and people in responding to this outrageous attack, and said that the Libyan government must continue to work with us to assure the security of our personnel going forward," the statement said.

Obama "made it clear that we must work together to do whatever is necessary to identify the perpetrators of this attack and bring them to justice," the statement said, adding that the two leaders agreed to "work closely over the course of this investigation."
