Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak is set to visit France on Sunday for talks with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, his second visit to the European country in two months, state agency MENA said.

Mubarak, 82, will then travel to the United States to participate in the launch of direct negotiations between the Palestinians and the Israelis on Sept. 2.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced on Friday the launch of direct talks between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, the first direct negotiations in 20 months.

Mubarak visited Germany in March for gallbladder surgery in Heidelberg Hospital. In 2004, he had surgery for a slipped disc at a Munich hospital.
