Trump says will discuss military issues, Qatar with Kuwait's emir

Trump Kuwaiti Emir

Donald Trump appeared to enjoy his recent visit with Kuwaiti Emir Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah, calling him a "good partner" and a "very special person".

The US President briefed H H Emir on the results of his communication with HRH Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as well as the discussions held in this regard with the Emir of Kuwait H H Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, within the framework of the generous mediation led by His Highness.

"For Trump to say "I support the Kuwaiti emir in his diplomacy and if it doesn't work I am ready to step in and bring them all to the White House", this is a different language than the language that we heard before". He applauded Kuwait's "critical contributions to regional stability" and repeated an offer to mediate himself, particularly between Qatar and Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Qatar's only land border with Saudi Arabia has only been blocked as a result.

Kuwait has been trying to mediate the dispute between Qatar and its US-allied Arab neighbors.

"Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt are all essential USA partners in this effort".

"We have great relationships with all of them right now; maybe better than we've ever had", Mr Trump said.

Saudi Arabia and its allies accuse Qatar, the world's largest exporter of liquefied natural gas, of ties to Iran and to terrorist groups. Although Qatar has rejected some of them out of hand, Sheikh Sabah said he believed negotiations were possible.

Trump acknowledged that previous administrations had come close to, yet never reached, a deal between Israel and the Palestinians. "I think we'll have something solved".

The U.S. president said he appreciated Kuwait's role as a mediator "very much", but said he, too, would be "willing to be the mediator". Qatar hosts a US military base critical to the anti-IS fight in Iraq and Syria.
