Hospitalised for medical tests

Last summer, the Emir was reported to have suffered a health “setback” while in Kuwait.

The following month, he was hospitalised for medical tests during a visit to the US.

Sheikh Sabah has been credited with shaping the Gulf nation’s foreign policy and spent decades as foreign minister before becoming emir in 2006.
