DEAUVILLE, France - French President Nicolas Sarkozy said a Palestinian unity deal was "good news" for the Middle East peace process and that France would do everything it could to revive Palestinian-Israeli negotiations.

The Fatah movement of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and its Islamist rival Hamas have agreed to set up a new government.

"France believes the Palestinian unity announcement is good news," Sarkozy said at a news conference at the G8 meeting in northern France.
