The Dubai Ruler was accompanied by Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, and Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Dubai Aviation Authority, and Supreme Chairman of the Aviation Group in the UAE.

Sheikh Sabah died on Tuesday.

Sheikh Sabah, 91, had ruled the Gulf Arab state and US ally since 2006 and steered its foreign policy for more than 50 years.

Sheikh Sabah sought to balance relations with Kuwait's bigger neighbours — forging the closest ties with Saudi Arabia, rebuilding links with former occupier Iraq and keeping open dialogue with Iran.
