WASHINGTON, July 15 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel spoke over the phone with his French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian on Tuesday to discuss events unfolding in Iraq, a Pentagon spokesman said.

John Kirby said in a statement that Hagel provided Le Drian an update on the situation in Iraq, to include the political dynamics in Baghdad and a general sense of the security environment.

"Hagel and Le Drian also discussed the deep U.S.-French defense cooperation in Africa, as well as preparations for the NATO summit in Wales in September," the spokesman said.

The two ministers agreed to keep in close contact on a broad range of security issues, and to speak again soon, according to the statement.

Hagel and Le Drian met during the D-Day commemorations in Paris on June 7.
