U.S. President Barack Obama will host Saudi Arabia's King Salman in their first and long-delayed White House summit Friday, with clashing views on Middle Eastern crises coming to the fore.Behind public statements of partnership, the meeting looks likely to be dominated by disagreements on Syria and Yemen as well as lingering doubts about the nuclear deal with Iran.Saudi Arabia publicly voiced tepid support for the Iran deal, but privately expressed grave misgivings that the nuclear agreement may legitimize their arch-foe Iran.The White House would still like to assuage Saudi concerns that the deal equates to turning a blind eye to Iran's activities.Differences over Iran have exacerbated tensions between the United States and Saudi Arabia over the crises in Syria and Yemen.
