WASHINGTON, July 9 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama and two Gulf state leaders Tuesday called for ending the violence that gripes Egypt since the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi a week ago.

The appeal was made in a phone conversation between Obama, Qatari Amir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi from the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The trio voiced "deep concern" about the Egypt situation, calling on all sides to avoid the use of and incitement to violence, the White House said.

Obama, Al Thani and Al Nahyan also urged an "inclusive" path forward in Egypt, pledging to promote a quick return to "a democratically elected civilian government," it said.

On Monday, Egyptian security forces opened fire on Morsi supporters, and clashes ensuing left at least 51 people dead, prompting the Muslim Brotherhood, to which Morsi belongs, to call for more protests.
