DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Kuwait says its 91-year-old ruling emir, who recently underwent surgery, will travel to the U.S. for further medical care.
That’s according to a report Wednesday night by the state-run KUNA news agency.
Kuwait has yet to elaborate what required Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah to seek a previously unannounced medical treatment beginning Saturday. However, Sheikh Sabah’s sudden surgery could inspire a renewed power struggle within Kuwait’s ruling family.
Sheikh Sabah will leave for the U.S. on Thursday morning.
