The Emir of Kuwait is set to visit neighbouring Iraq tomorrow, according to a foreign ministry spokesman.
Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah will travel to Iraq at the head of a government delegation in order to hold talks on regional developments and bilateral relations with President Barham Salih, Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi and Parliamentary Speaker Mohammed Al-Halbusi.
The visit follows a similar visit made by Abdul-Mahdi to Kuwait last month. It comes amid heightened tensions in the Gulf region due to the recent attacks on a number of oil installations and tankers. The US and Britain have blamed Iran and its proxies for the attacks. Tehran has denied the allegations.
