Kuwait Emir to travel to US for medical treatment

Kuwait’s 91-year-old ruling emir will travel to the United States on Thursday morning to seek further medical care after recently undergoing surgery, the state-run news agency KUNA reported.

KUNA quoted a statement from the country’s royal court saying Sheikh Sabah would leave “based on advice from the medical team treating His Highness to complete his treatment after a successful surgical procedure”.

No details were shared on what required Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah to seek a previously unannounced medical treatment beginning on Saturday and a surgery on Sunday.

The statement, attributed to Sheikh Ali Jarrah Al Sabah, the country’s royal court minister, did not elaborate or say where in the US the emir will receive treatment.
