The presidents of France and Egypt met on Monday in Paris to discuss how a planned November summit of the Mediterranean Union could contribute to a Middle East peace accord after the resumption of direct Israeli – Palestinian talks.

AP - The presidents of France and Egypt want a planned November summit of leaders from around the Mediterranean to underpin a possible Middle East peace accord.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy says “new hope presents itself” with the resumption of direct talks between Israeli and Palestinian leaders later this week in Washington.

Sarkozy hosted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak for talks Monday in Paris and insisted afterward that “no one can make peace alone in the Middle East.”

They also discussed the Union for the Mediterranean summit in Barcelona planned for November.

Sarkozy also said the group of 27 European Union nations and 16 southern Mediterranean and Middle East countries could encourage talks toward Mideast peace.
