The visit by Sheik Sabah Al Ahmed Al Sabah comes as Obama and top aides are lobbying skeptical lawmakers to support using military force against Syria for a deadly chemical weapons attack the U.S. says was carried out by Syrian President Bashar Assad (bah-SHAR' AH'-sahd).
The White House says Obama looks forward to meeting with the emir and discussing a range of critical interests and developments in the Gulf region and the broader Middle East.
