Sarkozy to meet Saudi king, Lebanon PM in New York
French President Nicolas Sarkozy will meet Saudi Arabia's recuperating King Abdullah and Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri in New York, a French official said Monday.
After meeting with President Barack Obama in the White House Monday, Sarkozy was to hold talks with the Saudi monarch on regional issues including Lebanon, Iran, the Middle East peace process and the fight against terrorism, as well as bilateral French-Saudi relations, a member of Sarkozy's entourage said.
Sarkozy will meet separately with Hariri in "a continuation of the discussions he had with him last November 30 at the Elysee Palace over the situation in Lebanon and Lebanese-French relations," the official said.
