Talks between Obama, Saudi king will include Iran's actions

Posted:
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says next week's visit by Saudi Arabia's King Salman will include talks about Yemen, Syria and Iran's actions to destabilize the region.
   The visit on Sept. 4 comes amid Saudi concerns about the Iranian nuclear deal.
   Spokesman Josh Earnest says the visit underscores the importance of the strategic partnership between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia. He also says the president and king will discuss a range of issues that include joint security and counter-terrorism efforts.
   It is Salman's first visit since ascending the throne in January after the death of King Abdullah.
