US Pres. upcoming visit to kingdom to follow-up Camp David's outcome – FM

RIYADH, March 27 (KUNA) — Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir said Sunday the upcoming visit by US President Barack Obama to the region was to follow up remaining issues agreed upon during the summit in Camp David in Washington last May.
The minister made his remarks in a joint press conference with his South Africa counterpart Maite Nkoana-Mashabane.
Al-Jubeir underlined relation between Saudi Arabia and the United States remains strong, despite regional changes in the region, adding that the US affirmed its commitment in supporting and defending GCC countries in the past GCC-US summit.
Last week, Obama said he will visit the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on April 21.
While there, he will participate in a summit with leaders from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries — Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, the White House said.
“Hosted by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, the gathering will be an opportunity for leaders to review progress in strengthening US-GCC security cooperation since the productive Camp David Summit hosted by President Obama in May 2015,” the statement added.
