Saudi to deal with US on a long-pending request for as many as 72 F-15 Eagle tactical fighters

Abdullah and Obama met a year ago in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia's capital, the day before Obama's Cairo address to the Muslim world, at a time when the US was seeking inducements to Israel from the Arab world to move peace negotiations forward.
