Kuwait’s 91-year-old ruler Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah left for the United States on Thursday for medical treatment. His office sources said.
He has ruled the oil-rich Gulf state since 2006. He has been in hospital since last weekend. At this time his body was operated on.
Sheikh Sabah left the country this morning for the United States to complete his treatment, state news agency KUNA quoted a statement from his office. The statement added that he was going to the United States on the advice of a medical team to complete the treatment after a successful operation.
However, the statement did not say what his condition was, what kind of surgery he had undergone in Kuwait, and what kind of treatment he was planning to receive in the United States.
He had to undergone a medical test shortly after arriving in the United States in September last year. That is why his meeting with President Donald Trump was canceled.
