Camp David summit to show Obama Gulf's generational shift

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 05/12/2015 - 23:47

U.S. President Barack Obama speaks at an event recognizing emerging global entrepreneurs at the White House in WashingtonBy Angus McDowall and William Maclean RIYADH/DUBAI (Reuters) - The new generation of Gulf Arab leaders meeting U.S. President Barack Obama on Wednesday appear more assertive than their fathers, want a range of alliances instead of dependence on Washington, and may be readier to say 'no' to their main ally. Saudi Arabia's King Salman, 79, caused a stir this week when he said he would send his two heirs to the United States for the summit instead, raising fears about Gulf anger over U.S. policy and reluctance to bless its plans for an Iran nuclear deal. Kuwait's 85-year-old emir is the only member of the old guard of Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) leaders attending Camp David, although Qatar's emir, who has ruled for less than two years, will also be there.
