WARSAW, Poland — French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are meeting near Warsaw with the Polish president amid disputed elections in neighboring Belarus and ongoing demonstrations in Egypt.

President Bronislaw Komorowski is hosting the two leaders at the Wilanow Palace as part of a tripartite summit called Weimar Triangle talks. The meeting will be the first summit after a four-year hiatus after Poland's previous president put the talks on hold.

Komorowski says he wants to revive top-level ties ahead of Poland's presidency of the European Union starting July 1.

Besides international issues, Komorowski says he wants to discuss principles for running the EU and the leading role of its eurozone members.
