HEALTH OF KUWAIT’S EMIR IS NOW STABLE
Kuwait’s prime minister announced that the country’s 91-year old emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah, is now in stable health condition and continually improving.
He is currently in the United States completing medical treatment following surgery for an unspecified condition in Kuwait.
Nawaf al-Ahmad al-Sabah, an 83-year-old Crown Prince, assumed some of Sheikh Sabah’s powers temporarily.
It can be recalled that under Kuwaiti law when the emir is absent, Sheikh Nawaf, the emir’s half-brother, is appointed acting ruler.
