Leaders of Gulf nations will warn President Barack Obama of the risks of completing a nuclear deal with Iran as they meet at Camp David Thursday, while Obama will try to convince them of the potential benefits for the region.Obama, meanwhile, has invested too much in the Iran negotiations to let Gulf concerns upend his legacy-building bid for a deal.Obama met separately Wednesday with Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammad bin Nayef and Deputy Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.Obama said they would discuss how to build on a cease-fire in Yemen and work toward "an inclusive, legitimate government" in Saudi Arabia's impoverished neighbor.The absence of many top Arab leaders, in addition to King Salman, is viewed as a reflection of frustration with Obama's pursuit of a nuclear deal with Iran and a perceived U.S. failure to support opposition fighters in Syria.Obama does not have private meetings on his public schedule with the leaders from the other countries.
