US Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Tuesday said it was "critical" that Egypt's government fulfill its promises and move ahead with a democratic transition after days of mass street protests.

Gates, in his first public remarks on the unrest, told reporters the transition from President Hosni Mubarak's rule needed to be orderly but continue to "move forward."
