U.S. president Barack Hussein Obama arrived in Riyadh on April 20, 2016 amidst crisis between the U.S. and Saudi Arabian governments.

The growing strength of the people’s resistance in Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Afghanistan, Turkey, Yemen, Bahrain and in Saudi Arabia itself as well as the developing power of Iran are the primary causes that are forcing a rethink of relationship throughout the region.
