Iranian President, Saudi King Pledge To Fight Muslim Sectarian Strife In Mideast

Updated:
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) _ Iranian and Saudi leaders are pledging to fight the spread of sectarian strife in the Middle East. They say it's the biggest danger facing the region.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (mahk-MOOD' ah-muh-DEE'-neh-zhahd) and King Abdullah made the commitment today during their first official talks in Saudi Arabia.

According to the official Saudi Press Agency, the two leaders also stressed the importance of maintaining Palestinian unity and bringing security to Iraq.

The agency quoted Ahmadinejad as saying he supports Saudi efforts to calm the situation in Lebanon and end its political crisis. Iran is a supporter of Lebanon's Shiite Hezbollah group, which is trying to topple the U-S- and Saudi-backed government.
