FILE - In this March 31 2012, file photo U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton listens to Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saudi al-Faisal, right, speak to media after their meeting with the foreign ministers of the Gulf Cooperation Council "GCC" in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The Obama administration is seeking to advance talks about missile defense system against Iran with Saudis and their neighbors. It remains unclear how quickly foes such as Iran and North Korea could develop a capability to strike the United States with missiles, but the U.S. says Iran is already capable of hitting Europe. The United States is spending nearly $10 billion a year on missile defense when military budgets are stretched. But the programs have yet to prove that they can reliably knock long-range missiles out of the sky and protect the U.S. from emerging threats. (AP Photo/Hassan Ammar, File)
