WASHINGTON—President Trump met briefly on Friday with the chief of Kuwait and afterward explained the little Gulf Arab condition would soon develop into the up coming country to normalize relations with Israel.

Sheikh Nasser Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, the Kuwaiti emir, did not converse to reporters, and the Kuwaiti Embassy in Washington did not quickly reply to a request for remark on Mr. Trump’s statement.

“They are so excited that we signed the 1st two countries that I consider they will close up fairly immediately staying a element of it,” Mr. Trump said at a White Home 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 explained he and the emir spoke just briefly about Kuwait becoming a member of the peace offer and supplied no specifics about when it might do so.

The peace offer represents a normalization of diplomatic relations among Israel and Gulf countries, but the Palestinians have rejected the negotiations out of hand.
