Obama to host Saudi King Abdullah on June 29

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama will host Saudi King Abdullah for talks in Washington on June 29, the White House said on Sunday.

“The president looks forward to discussing with King Abdullah the strengthening of bilateral ties between the United States and Saudi Arabia as well as a range of common concerns related to Gulf security, peace in the Middle East and other regional and global matters,” White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said in a statement.

Oil-producing giant Saudi Arabia is a close U.S. ally in the Middle East.
