Saudi king’s US absence signals discontent with Iran policy

Saudi King Salman (R) meets with US President Barack Obama at Erga Palace in Riyadh on January 27, 2015Discontent with American policy toward Iran is behind the last-minute pullout by Saudi King Salman from a summit with US President Barack Obama this week, analysts say. Obama invited Salman along with five other Gulf rulers to the White House on Wednesday followed by a retreat the following day at Camp David. He hopes to shore up wavering trust while Washington tries to reach a deal to curb the nuclear programme of Shiite Iran, the regional rival to Sunni-dominated Gulf monarchies. Only the leaders of Kuwait and Qatar will now likely attend the summit, indicating "a lack of consideration, a disagreement and a lack of respect for President Barack Obama," said Abdelkhaleq Abdallah, an analyst from the United Arab Emirates.
