Kuwait Emir confirms Qatar ready to meet, discuss 13 demands

Published: Updated:

Kuwait’s Emir Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah has confirmed that Qatar is ready to meet and discuss the 13 demands made by the four Anti-Terror Quartet countries that broke off ties with Doha months ago.

Kuwait’s Emir was in Washington on Thursday where he met with United States President Donald Trump to discuss several topics including the ongoing crisis involving Qatar and several of its neighboring countries.

During a joint press conference, Trump confirmed that the crisis began over several countries supporting the funding of terrorism over the years.

Trump did say on Thursday that the White House was prepared to be directly involved in mediation efforts if the crisis is not resolved quickly.

The Kuwaiti Emir’s last official visit to Washington came in 2013 and is currently leading a large delegation which includes his country’s Foreign Minister Sheikh Sabah Al Khalid Al Hamad Al Sabah, Interior Minister Sheikh Khalid Al Jarrah Al Sabah, Finance Minister Anas Khaled Al Saleh, and National Guard deputy chairman Sheikh Meshal Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah.
