Saud Nasser Al-Saud Al-Sabah
Saud Nasser Al-Saud Al-Sabah (3 October 1944 – 21 January 2012) was a Kuwaiti politician and diplomat.
Sabah was born on 3 October 1944.
Sabah served as ambassador of Kuwait to Great Britain in the 1980s. Then he served as Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States during the First Gulf War, more specifically from 1981 to 1992. In 1992, he was appointed information minister and served in the post until March 1998. He was oil minister from March 1998 to 2000. He resigned from the post due to an explosion that killed five workers at the country's largest oil refinery.
He and his daughter Nayirah were reportedly involved in Citizens for a Free Kuwait, a front group established by the Kuwaiti government to promote US involvement in the Gulf War. This involvement was covered in the 1992 documentary film To Sell a War.
