French President Nicolas Sarkozy will meet with the newly appointed US special envoy to the Middle East, George Mitchell, before he flies to the region in his first bid to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian crisis. Sarkozy's office says the French leader spent a half hour on the telephone with US President Barack Obama on Monday for "substantial" exchanges on the Mideast and other issues. A statement says Obama told Sarkozy that Mitchell would stop in Paris and Sarkozy would meet him. Washington has not announced an official date for Mitchell's first trip, but an Israeli Foreign Ministry official has said Mitchell is due in Israel Wednesday.
