The White House is dealing with a royal snub.
More from FOX News Radio's Jessica Golloher in our Middle East Bureau.
The kings of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia won't be at the summit of allied Arab leaders and the U.S.
In a statement, the Kingdom saying the summit coincides with the humanitarian ceasefire in Yemen. Saudi Arabia has been targeting Shiite Houthi rebels there with airstrikes for more than a month.
President Obama had planned to meet with Saudi's newly installed King Salman for a one-on-one before the gathering. Both countries are sending crown princes instead of their kings. Leaders are expected to address the threat of Islamic insurgents at the summit.
In Jerusalem, Jessica Golloher, FOX News Radio.
The kings of Saudi Arabia and Bahrain have RSVP'd for President Obama's summit of Gulf nation leaders -- and their answers are "no thanks".
