Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:
I am deeply saddened by the death of the Amir of Kuwait, HH Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmed Al Jaber Al Sabah, a great humanitarian leader and a true friend of the United Kingdom.
He served Kuwait for many years with dedication, and as a founding father of the GCC he contributed over many decades to maintaining peace and stability in the region.
On behalf of the UK, I would like to offer my sincere condolences to Kuwait and its people at this sad time.
