Gulf Arab leaders will meet in Saudi Arabia next week to prepare for a May summit with US President Barack Obama, Kuwait's Foreign Minister was quoted as saying, with the summit expected to touch on Iran's nuclear program and developments in Yemen.

The White House said earlier this month that Obama will meet leaders from the Gulf Cooperation Council group of countries at the White House on May 13 and at the presidential retreat at Camp David, Maryland, the following day.

Kuwait's state news agency KUNA said Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah al-Khaled al-Sabah told journalists there that GCC heads of state would meet in the Saudi capital Riyadh on May 5.

"It (the summit) will be preceded by a meeting on Thursday (April 30) at the level of foreign ministers to agree and coordinate what will be put forth at the Camp David summit that will bring together the GCC leaders and President Barack Obama," KUNA quoted Sheikh Sabah as saying.

The US summit will be an opportunity for Obama to discuss concerns about the deal reached with Iran on its nuclear program, as well as the Saudi-led military campaign in Yemen.
