On the tarmac, President Obama was greeted by several Saudi officials. A long, red carpet had been laid out at the foot of Air Force One's stairs.

The president spent a couple minutes saying hello to the assembled officials. Then, they all walked as a group toward Marine One, chatting as they strolled.

The White House sends along this list of greeters:

*   Ambassador Joseph W. Westphal, U.S. Ambassasador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
 *   Mrs. Linda Westphal, Wife of U.S. Ambassador
 *   HRH Prince Faisal bin Bandar bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, Governor of Riyadh
 *   HE Engineer Ibrahim Al-Sultan, Mayor of Riyadh Region
 *   Mr. Fahad Al-Saheel, Royal Protocol - Airports In-charge

The president departed in Marine One, headed to a landing zone and then to Erga Palace to meet with King Salman.
