Gulf Leaders Meet in Washington to Warn Obama Concerning Iran

Thursday, May 14, 2015 | , Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- Gulf nation leaders joined President Barack Obama at the White House Wednesday to warn of the risks of completing a nuclear deal with Iran. Obama was seeking to convince his counterparts of the potential benefits for the region, the Associated Press reported.

But when two days of talks wrap up on Thursday, it's unlikely much will have changed. The Gulf's skepticism of Iran is deep-seated and extends far beyond its nuclear pursuits. Obama, meanwhile, has invested too much in the Iran negotiations to let Gulf concerns upend his legacy-building bid for a deal.

The White House is expected to offer the Gulf nations more military assistance, including increased joint exercises and coordination on ballistic missile systems. But Gulf requests for a formal defense treaty already have been denied by the U.S., in part because of the difficulty of getting such an agreement approved by Congress. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/US-Obama-Arab-Summit/2015/05/13/id/644448/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
