The White House said next week’s visit by Saudi Arabia’s King Salman will include talks about Yemen, Syria and Iran’s actions in the region. The visit on Sept. 4 comes amid Saudi concerns about the Iranian nuclear deal, the AP reported.  Spokesman Josh Earnest said the visit underscores the importance of the strategic partnership between the US and Saudi Arabia. He also said 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.
