Kuwaiti Emir back to Kuwait

Sheikh Sabah returns home after hospital treatment in United States.

DUBAI - Kuwait's 90-year-old ruler Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah returned home on Wednesday after hospital treatment in the United States, state news agency KUNA said.

Sheikh Sabah has ruled the US ally and OPEC oil producer since 2006 and steered its foreign policy for more than 50 years.

The emir's office said in August that Sheikh Sabah had suffered a health setback while in Kuwait, without providing details. He then travelled to the United States for a meeting with US President Donald Trump which was cancelled when he was admitted to hospital.
