Syria's state-run news agency reported on Monday that Saudi King Abdullah will visit Damascus this week, in the latest sign of improving relations between the two Arab rivals. SANA did not say when Abdullah will arrive but reported he will hold meetings with Syrian President Bashar Assad. There was no immediate official Saudi confirmation on the announcement. It will be the first time a Saudi king visits Syria since the February 2005 assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, the kingdom's strongest ally in Lebanon.
