Kuwaiti Emir, Bahraini King heading for Saudi Arabia

Published: Updated:

Both leaders of Kuwait and Bahrain are heading to Saudi Arabia to discuss the latest developments in the Gulf region.

Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah arrived in Jeddah on Tuesday night and was welcomed by Prince Khalid Al-Faisal, a key adviser to Saudi King Salman and who was just in Kuwait on Monday night.

Meanwhile Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa is set to travel to Saudi Arabia on Wednesday for a one-day trip.

Kuwait is currently attempting to mediate between Qatar and several Gulf neighbors after they took the decision on Monday to sever ties over Doha’s aggressive policies that include supporting and funding extremist groups.

Qatar's foreign minister said on Tuesday Doha was ready for mediation efforts after the Arab world's biggest powers severed ties with it, adding that Qatar's ruler had delayed a speech in order to give Kuwait a chance to ease regional tensions.
