SCRIPT
The Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah, held talks with Iraqi leaders on his trip to Baghdad on Wednesday. Footage shows Sabah being welcomed by Iraqi President Barham Salih and guards of honour at the airport.
It's a rare visit by a ruler of the Gulf state invaded by Iraq in 1990. The talks were expected to focus on the rising US-Iran tensions and security in the region. Kuwait has been assuming
the role of negotiator in regional disputes.
After meeting Barham Salih at the presidential palace, Sabah was set to hold talks with Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi and Parliament Head Mohammad al-Halbusi
