Vice President Joe Biden has visited the family of Saudi King Abdullah in a New York hospital where the aging monarch is convalescing after back surgery.

The White House says the vice president made the unannounced visit Wednesday and was received by the king's family, including Abdullah's son Prince Miteb bin Abdullah.

Biden delivered a personal letter from President Barack Obama for the 86-year-old monarch that wished him a quick recovery, the White House says.

Abdullah arrived in New York on Nov. 22 for medical treatment for what the palace said was a slipped disk and a blood clot pressing on nerves in his back.
