Richard Grenell, the U.S. president's envoy for the talks between Serbia and Kosovo, has announced that Kosovo President Hashim Thaci had cancelled his trip to Washington for the June 27 meeting at the White House.
"The President of Kosovo has just informed us that he has canceled his trip to Washington, D.C. following the announcement made by the Special Prosecutors Office. I respect his decision not to attend the discussions until the legal issues of those allegations are settled," Grenell tweeted on June 24.
Thaci was supposed to attend the meeting at the White House with Grenell and with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, who earlier confirmed that he would travel to Washington.
Grenell added that he was looking forward to the meeting with Vucic and Kosovo Premier Avdulah Hoti.
