Secretary of State Clinton to Visit Saudi on Friday and Saturday

Clinton will be in Saudi Arabia’s capital of Riyadh Friday and Saturday. There, she’ll meet with Saudi King Abdullah and participate in an event dedicated to the “strategic cooperation” between the U.S. and Gulf Arab states.

Washington and many of its allies say Syrian President Bashar Assad has lost all legitimacy in a year of cracking down on political opponents. They say Assad must step down, according to the AP.
