Al Jazeera: Obama to discuss security with Gulf leaders

Summit comes as US rules out military pact with six Gulf nations, part of a military coalition fighting Yemeni rebels.

US President Barack Obama will seek to convince his Gulf allies that Washington is committed to their security despite deep concern among Arab leaders about US efforts to broker a nuclear deal with Iran.

During a rare, high-profile summit at the Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland on Thursday, Obama will meet with representatives from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Oman, all members of the Gulf Cooperation Council, to discuss security cooperation.
