Saudi King Meets Republican Delegation Ahead of Obama Visit

Thursday, 31 March 2016 01:32 PM

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Saudi Arabia's official news agency says King Salman has met with a Republican Congressional delegation ahead of President Barack Obama's scheduled visit next month.

Thursday's meeting comes 10 days after four other American senators held talks with the Saudi monarch in Riyadh.

The Saudi Press Agency says the U.S. team was led by Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, and included Senators Thom Tillis of North Carolina and David Perdu of Georgia, as well as Congressmen David Jolly of Florida, Adam Kinzinger of Illinois and Tom Rice of South Carolina.

The six-member delegation was in Israel Wednesday and met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Obama is due in Riyadh on April 21 to attend a summit with Salman and leaders of Qatar, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Oman.
