French President Nicolas Sarkozy will hold a working lunch with the European Union's newly-chosen first president Belgian Herman Van Rompuy on Friday, his office said.

PARIS - Van Rompuy embarked on a tour of European capitals after he was chosen for the newly-created post at an EU summit last month.

The former Belgian prime minister has promised to "listen carefully" to leaders to ensure that the 27-nation bloc can produce results, and has this week already visited Slovenia and Milan.

Sarkozy's office announced the working lunch at the Elysée palace in a statement, but did not provide details on the agenda for the meeting.
