Sheikh Sabah in US for treatment

Kuwait’s ruler Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al-Sabah left for the United States (US) on Thursday to undergo medical care, days after he had surgery for an undisclosed illness.

The emir, who has ruled the oil-rich Gulf state since 2006, had been in hospital since the weekend.

Sheikh Sabah “left the country today at dawn to go to the United States to complete his medical treatment”, his office said in a statement.

The statements did not reveal the nature of his illness, the type of surgery he had undergone in Kuwait.

In September 2019, he underwent medical tests shortly after arriving in the United States.

The emir had his appendix removed in 2002. In 2007, he underwent urinary tract surgery in the United States.
