Kuwait Emir to hold talks with Trump

Trump also promised the Kuwait leader of the USA support of the nation's meddling in the rift between Qatar and its Arab neighbors.

Trump said Kuwait was helping the United States in the Gulf and things were "coming along nicely".

"Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt are all essential U.S. partners in this effort".

His comments came in a joint news conference with the Kuwaiti emir, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah, in Washington on Thursday.

President Donald Trump's oldest son is scheduled to make his first appearance on Capitol Hill Thursday as part of a Senate investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential election and a meeting he had with Russians during his father's campaign past year.

Trump also talked about North Korea, saying that military action is not inevitable.

Trump plans to meet both Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly later this month.

Trump also said the United States' good relations with both sides in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict could help bring about a peace agreement - what he called the "world's most complex and hard deal".

"The Emir of Kuwait is a very special person who I've gotten to know over the, actually over the years", Mr Trump told reporters.

The meeting will address bilateral relations and regional and global developments of mutual interest, and cooperation in the fight against terror will figure high on the summit's agenda, the envoy said, stressing that Kuwait is a major partner to the U.S. in the war on terror.

Trump noted that he spoke to King Salman of Saudi Arabia by phone on Wednesday.

Saudi Arabia and its allies accuse Qatar, the world's largest exporter of liquefied natural gas, of ties to Iran and to terrorist groups.

Qatar has strongly denied the allegations and denounced demands made by the blockading countries as attempts to infringe Qatar's sovereignty.
