Saudi king in Washington

Palestinian issue and trade set to dominate Obama-Abdullah discussions in Washington.

    Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah is set to meet US President Barack Obama for talks in Washington DC on Tuesday.

    The discussions between the two leaders are expected to focus on Israeli-Palestinian peace negotations and stepping up trade between the two countries.  

    Iran's nuclear programme has also been a major foreign-policy priority for both countries.
