The White House announced Tuesday the official dates for visits from Middle East leaders.

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will visit Monday. Egypt President Hosni Mubarak will visit May 26, and Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority, will visit May 28, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said.

He said President Obama “looks forward to welcoming key partners in the effort to achieve a comprehensive peace in the Middle East.”

“With each of them, the president will discuss ways the United States can strengthen and deepen our partnerships, as well as the steps all parties should take to help achieve peace between Israelis and Palestinians and between Israel and the Arab states,” Mr. Gibbs also said.
