Obama visits Riyadh in March to smooth discord over Syria and Iran
President Barack Obama will travel to Saudi Arabia in March to meet King Abdullah about what a senior Arab official called “a deteriorating relationship,” over US policy on Iran’s nuclear program and the civil war in Syria, the Wall Street Journal reported. "The meeting in many ways will get back to basics," said a Saudi official, to find out. "Why did Obama do it the way he did it?" A White House spokeswoman declined to comment.
