Iran's President to Visit Saudi King
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
This next news item takes on added significance, given what we just heard of the tension between Iran and Saudi Arabia. Iran's president is planning a visit to his country's neighbor across the Persian Gulf. He arrives in Riyadh tomorrow to meet with King Abdullah. It will be the first official trip to Saudi Arabia for President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. That also means a major American opponent will be meeting the leader of a major U.S. ally.
