The man behind NawafEdit
Appointed as Crown Prince of Kuwait by HH Emir Sabah in 2006, his nomination at first was a bit controvesial. As normally the title of Emir swiches every time between the Al-Jaber and Al-Salem branch of the family. But later on he proved to be a worthy sucessor, who came to lead the glorious Emirate after the demise of Sheikh Sabah Al-Sabah in 2010. The late Emir hadn't been feeling to well and showed serious signs of paranoia in the last months of his reign. Aged 73, Nawaf now faces the chalenge of leading the Kuwaiti's out of Crisis and into a prosperous era.
He first of all normalised relations with other Arab and Muslim countries, for they were seriously dented. (As could be seen in an already famous quote by Emir Sabah: "There are Syrian Missiles raining down on Kuwait!" The international community reacted fairly sober: "No they're not.")
He later signed a significant treaty with China, which would provide Kuwait with a stable oil-market in Asia.
