The Saudi press agency says King Abdullah has told President Barack Obama that there should be no bargaining about Egypt’s stability and the security of its people.

SPA said on Sunday that Mr. Obama phoned the king in Morocco, where he is recuperating from surgery, and that both leaders were not happy with the chaotic situation and looting.

It said the king talked on Saturday to President Hosni Mubarak and assured him that the Saudi government and people stand with the Egyptian government and people.

SPA said Mr. Mubarak assured the king that “the situation is stable” and that Egypt was determined to deter attempts to cause disorder.
