The Emir of Kuwait was hospitalized for medical examination

The Emir of Kuwait, Sabah al-Ahmed al-Jaber al-Sabah, was hospitalized for medical examinations, according to the Kuwaiti news agency KUNA.

“His Highness the Emir of Kuwait, Sabah al-Ahmed al-Jaber al-Sabah, was hospitalized on Saturday for several medical examinations,” the Agency quoted the Minister of the Emir’s Diwan (office), Sheikh Ali al-Jarrah al-Sabah, as saying.

He added that the 91-year-old Emir is doing well.

Last year, the 90-year-old Emir planned to visit Washington to meet with US President Donald Trump, but was forced to postpone the visit for medical reasons and instead underwent a check-up at a US hospital. After medical examination, he returned to his homeland.
