Kuwait's emir heads to Saudi Arabia for talks with King Salman - agency

DUBAI (Reuters) - Kuwait’s ruler left the country on Tuesday on his way to Saudi Arabia, state news agency KUNA reported, for what Gulf officials had earlier said was a visit to hold talks with Saudi King Salman over a Gulf Arab dispute with Qatar.

The agency described Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber al-Sabah’s visit to Jeddah as a “brotherly visit”.

Sheikh Sabah is acting as a mediator between Qatar and some other Gulf Arab states including Saudi Arabia, which have severed diplomatic and transport ties with it.
