Kerry arrives in Saudi for key talks
Riyadh, November 4, 2013
US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Saudi Arabia last night for key talks on the Syrian conflict and Iran, a report said.
It was the second stop of an 11-day trip to the region, reported the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
Earlier, in Cairo, he admitted that while there might be differences over "tactics" in ending the Syrian conflict, the end goal for the US and its allies was the same - a transition of power.
He met his Egyptian counterpart and said Egypt was a "vital partner" that Washington was committed to working with.
Kerry, the most senior US official to visit Egypt since the army toppled Islamist president Mohamed Mursi in July, stressed the need for fair and transparent trials for all Egyptians. – TradeArabia News Service
