Kuwait's emir heads to Saudi Arabia for talks with King Salman

Kuwait's ruler left the country on Tuesday on his way to Saudi Arabia, state news agency KUNA reported, for what Gulf officials had earlier said was a visit to hold talks with Saudi King Salman over a Gulf Arab dispute with Qatar.
The agency described Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber al-Sabah's visit to Jeddah as a "brotherly visit".
Sheikh Sabah is acting as a mediator between Qatar and some other Gulf Arab states including Saudi Arabia, which have severed diplomatic and transport ties with it.
