The emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah, will visit
President Barack Obama in Washington on September 13 to talk about Middle Eastern
issues, the White House said on Friday.
"The President looks forward to discussing with the Emir a wide range of
critical interests and important developments in the Gulf region and broader
Middle East," the White House said in a statement.
The visit comes as the United States weighs military strikes in Syria after
August 21 chemical attacks on civilians, and reviews whether to cut aid to Egypt
after its military overthrew the government and cracked down on protesters.
