PARIS, Aug. 30 (Xinhua) -- Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak arrived here Monday to discuss the situation around planned direct talks between Israel and Palestine and to outline moves to push forward the peace process in the Middle East, President Nicolas Sarkozy's office said.

Sarkozy received his Egyptian counterpart "to discuss in particular the situation in the Middle East on the eve of meetings in Washington to mark the resumption of direct negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians," according to a statement from the office.

Sarkozy and Mubarak will also discuss the next Union for the Mediterranean summit in Barcelona in November, the statement said.

Palestinian and Israeli negotiators are due to relaunch peace talks in Washington on Sept. 2.

Their negotiations have been deadlocked since 2008 after an Israeli military raid devastated Gaza strip to halt rocket fires from the enclave ruled by the Hamas movement.
