Italian Premier Romano Prodi was heading to Cairo Monday for talks with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarark as Italy pushes for a European peace plan for the Middle East. Prodi was scheduled to arrive in Cairo in the early evening. The two men were scheduled to hold a joint news conference after their talks, aides to Prodi said. The Italian premier will meet with the Egyptian prime minister on Tuesday. Last week, France, Italy and Spain presented a Middle East peace initiative, asserting that Europe must move to the forefront of efforts to try to end years of Israeli-Palestinian bloodshed.
