- Aljazeera.com: Obama hosts Saudi Prince Salman at White House
The 30-year-old prince – who has become the driving force behind Saudi foreign policy – discussed a host of challenges facing stability in the Middle East region on Friday after meeting Obama in the Oval Office – a rare honour for a non-head of state.
President Obama hosted Saudi Arabian King Salman bin Abdul-Aziz at the White House today, the first visit since he became king earlier this year. “King Salman expressed his support for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) between Iran and the P5 + 1 countries, which once fully implemented will prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon and thereby enhance security in the region,” the White House account of the conversation said.
