ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S and Gulf partners agreed that a comprehensive, verifiable deal with Iran would be in their interests, President Obama said Thursday. Obama said that in Syria the leaders agreed to oppose all violent extremist groups and to intensify efforts to reach a negotiated agreement towards an inclusive government that does not include Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. He said they welcomed the humanitarian truce in Yemen as he called on all parties to return to political talks facilitated by the United Nations. The president said they spent a "considerable" time on Iran. Obama underscored that the purpose of security cooperation with Gulf states is not to marginalize Iran or perpetuate long term grievances.
