U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is meeting with senior Saudi officials Tuesday to discuss a range of issues, including the situation in Syria.

Both the United States and Saudi Arabia were part of a "Friends of Syria" meeting Saturday where the group pledged to give additional aid to rebels opposed to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Saudi Arabia has been supplying weapons to rebel fighters, while the United States recently said it would send arms in addition to the non-lethal aid it had been providing.
