A boy was seen in a video mourning over Emir of Kuwait Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah’s grave, talking about achieving the Gulf reconciliation agreement, Sputnik reported on Friday.
“As-salamu alaykum father, I brought you good news,” the boy said in the video. “Our brothers in the Gulf countries are no longer in sorrow. We became one people.”
“This is all thanks to God and to your efforts, and Father Sheikh Nawaf, who followed your path,” he added. “May God have mercy upon your soul, Father Sabah. May God preserve Father Nawaf.”
The video widely spread on social media, as people considered it the most emotional reaction to the Gulf summit in the Saudi province of Al-Ula.

Emir of Kuwait died after a long illness at the age of 91. He had ruled the country for nearly 15 years.
State television announced his death after playing Quranic prayers, with Royal Court Minister Sheikh Ali Jarrah Al Sabah reading a brief statement, his hands shaking.
“With great sadness and sorrow, the Kuwaiti people, the Arab and Islamic nations, and the friendly peoples of the world mourn the death of the late His Highness Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah, emir of the state of Kuwait who moved to the realm of the Lord,” the sheikh said, without offering a cause of death.
