Kuwaiti Emir Visits Washington to Meet with Trump

Kuwait– Kuwait’s Emiri Diwan said on Thursday that Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al Sabah would travel to Washington on Friday for talks with US President Donald Trump.

According to a statement published by Kuwait News Agency (KUNA), the Emir of Kuwait will meet with Trump on September 7.

Kuwait emerged as a key mediator after Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the UAE and Egypt cut diplomatic and economic ties with Qatar.

As soon as the four countries suspended their relations with the Arab peninsula, Trump expressed great support for Saudi Arabia, which was confirmed on Wednesday during a telephone conversation with King Salman bin Abdulaziz, to whom he stressed that the solution to the crisis with Qatar should be based on the Riyadh summit commitments to unite in the face of terrorism and Iranian threats and to defeat terrorism, cut off its funding and combat extremist ideology.

Sheikh Sabah received a telephone call on Thursday from Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. KUNA reported that the two leaders exchanged congratulations on Eid al-Adha, and discussed some important topics.
