Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak arrived on Wednesday in Istanbul for talks with Turkish leaders about efforts to reach a permanent truce in Gaza.

Egypt, France and Turkey had pushed Israel to end its three-week offensive in Gaza last month, launched to halt years of rocket fire on southern Israeli communities.
