French presidential candidate Segolene Royal is taking her campaign for the French presidency to a new frontier Thursday with a tour of the Middle East which could test whether a lawmaker whose glamour and grassroots politicking have wooed voters has the foreign policy mettle to run France. After a brief stop in Jordan, she will continue to Israel and the West Bank for talks Sunday with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah and talks with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Foreign Minister Tzipi Lipni in Tel Aviv. A trip to Syria was not on her agenda because Damascus "must give a certain number of assurances that it has not given in the search for peace," Royal spokesman Julien Dray said.
