RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) - President Barack Obama is thanking Saudi King Salman for hosting a Gulf Cooperation Council summit taking place in Riyadh.

Obama is meeting with King Salman at Erga Palace just after arriving in the Saudi capital. He says in brief remarks to reporters at the start of the meeting that the American people send their greetings to Saudis.

Obama says the U.S. is grateful to Saudi Arabia for hosting the meeting and the regional summit.

King Salman says he's pleased that Obama is visiting. He says through a translator that the feeling between the Saudi people and the American people is mutual.

The regional summit opens Thursday and focuses on stability, counterterrorism and Iran. The United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain are also attending.
