DUBAI - US Secretary of State John Kerry met Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal in Riyadh on Monday on the latest stop of a tour partly aimed at easing tensions with Arab powers, State Department officials said.

Saudi Arabia, Washington's main Arab ally, is angry with Washington over what it sees as a weak foreign policy it believes has allowed Israeli settlement construction to continue in the Palestinian territories and conflict to persist in Syria.
