Amiri Diwan: Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Dies At Age 91

Dubai- Massader News

Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah has died at the age of 91, the Kuwaiti royal palace Amiri Diwan announced, according to alarabiya.

Al-Sabah had flown to the United States in July to receive medical treatment following a surgery.

The Kuwaiti emir had authorized his crown prince to temporarily take over some responsibilities until he recovered.

The 91-year-old emir has ruled the US ally and OPEC oil producer since 2006 and steered its foreign policy for more than 50 years.

Last October, Sheikh Sabah suffered a health setback while in Kuwait and was admitted to a hospital in the US during his trip for a meeting with US President Donald Trump.
