Cheney meets Saudi king about Iraq and Iran

U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney arrived on Saturday in Saudi Arabia, a key U.S. ally which has grown cold on Washington's Iraq policy, for talks with King Abdullah expected to discuss Iran's growing power.

Cheney, who arrived in Saudi Arabia from the United Arab Emirates where he visited a U.S. aircraft carrier in the Gulf, has said Iran would top his talks with Arab leaders during his regional visit.

Saudi television showed King Abdullah receiving Cheney in the desert town of Tabuk in the far north of Saudi Arabia. Cheney was due to leave later on Saturday for Cairo. Reuters
