Subject: Travel pool report #12

At 8:33pm pool entered the villa where President Obama was meeting with King Salman of Saudi Arabia. No statements. POTUS and the king were seated at the opposite end of the room from the pool. Delegations were seated parallel along each side, the usual setup. The room was small. Pool saw Kerry, Rice. POTUS and the King stood up after about 30 seconds of photo snapping. They shook hands. POTUS then began to shake hands with the other Saudis. Pool was ushered out but there were stragglers. POTUS said he had to go to get to dinner. The whole thing lasted about 40 seconds.

Pool is now headed to a hold while POTUS goes to the dinner.
