Saudis Say "No" to Bush

During the second day of his visit to Saudi Arabia, George Bush endured a series of reverses handed to him by Riyahd. The Saudi Foreign Affairs Minister, Saud al-Faisal, declared that the kingdom had "nothing against Iran; it an important neighboring state" and that it could do nothing more in relation to Israel to foster Israeli-Palestinian peace.

Meanwhile, in Cairo where Turkish President Abdullah Gül is meeting with Hosni Mubarek, both leaders warned against military action against Tehran.
