French Foreign Ministry Spokesman Romain Nadal said on Monday that France is in close contact with all partners, especially Egypt and the Arab League, in preparation for a scheduled visit from Ambassador Pierre Vimont, the special envoy to the peace summit initiative to Cairo, later on Wednesday.

In response to a question by MENA news agency, Nadal said that Ambassador Vimont will hold consultations with the Egyptian authorities and the Arab League Secretary General Dr. Nabil Al-Arabi about the initiative's next stages in the wake of the Paris meeting, which was held on 3 June.

Representatives from 26 countries, including Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Morocco and other major powers, attended the Paris meeting in efforts to revive the peace process.

The attendees have issued a statement emphasizing their support for a lasting, just and comprehensive solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Paris is seeking to hold an international conference with the participation of the Palestinian and Israeli sides before the end of the year.
