DUBAI, June 6 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
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.
