Olmert to Meet With Sarkozy, Brown

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is to meet with French President Nicolas Sarkozy in Paris and with Prime Minister Gordon Brown in London at the end of October. He will brief the two leaders on his meetings with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas ahead of the peace conference in Washington in November, and will discuss ways of stopping Iran's nuclear program.

Olmert was last in Paris and London in June 2006. His talks with the previous leaders of France and Britain focused on the convergence plan, which has since been taken off the political agenda. Olmert has met with both Sarkozy and Brown in their previous posts.
