WASHINGTON—President Trump met briefly on Friday with the chief of Kuwait and afterward said the little Gulf Arab condition would soon turn out to be the next state to normalize relations with Israel.
Sheikh Nasser Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, the Kuwaiti emir, did not speak to reporters, and the Kuwaiti Embassy in Washington did not instantly respond to a ask for for remark on Mr. Trump’s assertion.
“They are so psyched that we signed the first two countries that I feel they will stop up quite speedily currently being a component of it,” Mr. Trump said at a White House push briefing of the prospect that Kuwait would be a part of United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, which signed peace accords with Israel and the U.S. on Tuesday.
Mr. Trump said he and the emir spoke just briefly about Kuwait joining the peace offer and presented no specifics about when it could possibly do so.
The peace offer represents a normalization of diplomatic relations amongst Israel and Gulf countries, but the Palestinians have turned down the negotiations out of hand.
