US President Barack Obama met Gulf leaders in Saudi Arabia on Thursday despite strains in ties with Washington, according to AFP.

Making what is likely his final presidential visit to America’s historic allies, Obama posed for a summit photo with the six regional leaders, including Saudi King Salman, before beginning about four hours of talks at a royal palace.

With nine months left of his term, the president is also again seeking to reassure his allies upset over American overtures to their regional rival, Iran.

The summit comes after Washington reported progress in recent months against the extremists of ISIL.
