RAMALLAH, West Bank, June 10, 2007 (AFP) - Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas will meet French President Nicolas Sarkozy during a visit to Paris in a week's time, a senior official in his office told AFP on Sunday.

Abbas is also due to meet Prime Minister Francois Fillon and Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner during the trip, the official said on condition on anonymity.

It will be the first meeting between the two leaders since Sarkozy assumed power last month. The Palestinians are hoping that he will continue France's traditional support for their cause.
