Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman will visit Kuwait on Saturday, the state-run Kuwait News Agency said on Friday, amid expectations that he will discuss a Kuwaiti mediation to resolve the kingdom’s conflict with Qatar.

A Gulf Arab official told Reuters the conflict with Qatar would be on the agenda in the talks.

The Saudi crown prince will hold talks with Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah, the Kuwaiti News Agency said in a tweet, giving no further details.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Egypt have imposed sanctions on Qatar, accusing it of cozying up to Iran — their arch regional rival — and supporting terrorism.

Doha denies the accusations. Kuwaiti mediation efforts have failed so far to end the crisis.
