Obama, Saudi King Discuss Iran

In a meeting in Riyadh on Tuesday, US President Barack Obama and Saudi King Salman held talks about Iran, among other topics.
Obama cut short a trip to India to fly to Riyadh to pay respects to the late King Abdullah. King Salman, in his first official talks with a high-level foreign delegation since the death of his half-brother on Friday, did not express reservations over the international negotiations aimed at resolving the long-running dispute over Iran’s nuclear program, Reuters quoted a US official as saying.
The king said Tehran should not be allowed to build a nuclear weapon, the US official told reporters. Iran denies the allegation that it may have been seeking to develop the capability to build nuclear weapons, saying its program is solely for peaceful applications, such as power generation.
