Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is due in Berlin on Friday for talks with German leaders on issues including the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and moves toward democracy in the Middle East. German President Horst Koehler was to greet Mubarak at his Berlin palace. Mubarak meets Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday and Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier on Sunday. Germany, like other European governments, is insisting that Hamas recognize Israel, renounce violence and support existing agreements under the international "road map" for peace in the region. Meanwhile, EU foreign ministers on Friday open two days of informal talks in Salzburg, Austria, to debate funding for Palestinians after Hamas assumes power.
