Qatar's ruler is in Saudi Arabia for talks with the newly enthroned King Salman about the deteriorating security situation in Yemen and relations with Egypt.

A Saudi official says Salman greeted Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani at the airport Tuesday, a day after a high-level delegation from the United Arab Emirates arrived for similar talks.

The official says Tuesday's talks are focused primarily on the Houthi rebel takeover in Yemen and Qatar's relations with Egypt. Riyadh and Doha had a diplomatic falling out after the Egyptian military's ouster of Qatari-backed President Mohammed Morsi in 2013.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to release the information.

Qatar's emir last visited Saudi Arabia in January to offer condolences after King Abdullah's death.
