Kuwait Emir to hold talks with Trump

12 September 2017

U.S. President Donald Trump spoke separately on Friday with Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, United Arab Emirates Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, and Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, the White House said in a statement. The leaders "also discussed the continued threat Iran poses to regional stability".

During that time, Trump invited al-Sabah to visit D.C.

Trump has instructed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to support the Kuwaiti mediation effort despite Qatar denying funding extremists.

The meeting will address bilateral relations and regional and global developments of mutual interest, and cooperation in the fight against terror will figure high on the summit's agenda, the envoy said, stressing that Kuwait is a major partner to the U.S. in the war on terror.

In a phone conversation on August 30, Trump told the Saudi monarch that a diplomatic resolution was necessary in order to fulfill a commitment Washington and its regional allies had made to stay united while fighting terrorism. He suggested a deal would be "worked out very quickly" if he became personally involved.

At a joint news conference with Trump on Thursday, Sheikh Sabah said he remained hopeful a resolution could be reached. But the dispute has dragged on. Although Qatar has rejected some of them out of hand, Sheikh Sabah said he believed negotiations were possible. The statement, which said the countries "regret" several of the comments by Sheikh Sabah, represents an unusual rebuke in the clubby world of Gulf Arab nations.
