WASHINGTON, May 12 (UPI) -- Three leaders in Middle East peace negotiations will be visiting U.S. President Barack Obama during May, the White House said Tuesday.

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will visit on May 18, followed by President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt on May 26, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said in a statement.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas will travel to Washington May 28, Gibbs said.
