Former US President Donald Trump's special envoy on the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue, Richard Grenell, has reacted harshly to Kosovo's next prime minister and leader of the party that won the February 14 election, Albin Kurti. Through a post on his Twitter account, Mr. Grenell has accused Mr. Kurti of being an anti-American person and politician and against policies suggested or pursued by the United States. "Kosovo's new leader, the anti-American leftist, Albin Kurti has been against US policies suggested by Bill Clinton, George Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump. "He is always anti-American," Grenell wrote. This statement by Grenell, which explains the fact why the dialogue process when the Kurti 1 government was in Kosovo, did not work. There have apparently been deep disagreements between the dialogue mediators and Prime Minister Kurti. After the first post, Mr. Grenell continued with a second, where he stated that the leader of Vetëvendosje has done some actions against the American presidents, throwing tear gas at the Assembly of Kosovo. Albin Kurti has thrown tear gas at the Kosovo Assembly in a bid to stop President Obama from backing the border demarcation with Montenegro. "Joe Biden also urged Kurt at the time to support the demarcation, but he instead chose terrorism," Grenell wrote. The former US envoy also called on the team of incumbent President Joe Biden to stop all this. He has invited Jake Sullivan, President Joe Biden's National Security Adviser,
Kurti's statement on the embassy
The location of the Republic of Kosovo in the state of Israel has opened many debates and has created many controversies in the international arena, but not only. Referring to the agreement signed in Washington, Kosovo had to open an embassy in Jerusalem, after Israel recognized Kosovo's independence. With the victory of the parliamentary elections in Kosovo by Lëvizja Vetëvendosje, the position of the future Prime Minister Albin Kurti with the location of the embassy is more or less in contradiction with the one agreed in the agreement. The Chairman of the Vetëvendosje Movement, Albin Kurti, stated that the Embassy of the Republic of Kosovo in Jerusalem and the establishment of diplomatic relations with the state of Israel are important issues for the country, but in a meeting with the Ambassador of Turkey, Çagri Sakar, Kurti said that the location of the embassy is a matter to be considered. "About the place where the embassy will be located is an issue that will be examined by looking at the documentation of the outgoing government. The incoming Prime Minister, Kurti informed the Ambassador about the priorities of his government and emphasized that in relation to Turkey we will focus on increasing our bilateral relations, especially in the field of economic development ", it is said in the announcement of LVV on Facebook. Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, the powerful Asian country with which Kosovo formalized mutual recognition, in a congratulatory letter, told Albin Kurti that he would be happy to welcome him to the inauguration of the Kosovo Embassy in Jerusalem. Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan wrote to Albin Kurti asking him to do the exact opposite, to review the decision to set up an embassy in Jerusalem. Between congratulations, Erdogan said that he welcomes the positions of Albin Kurti's party, that Kosovo's decision to establish an Embassy in Jerusalem will be considered. He told Kurti that if such a step was avoided it would become useful. "Furthermore, I am pleased to learn of your party's position that, if it comes to power, it will review Kosovo's commitment to the opening of the Embassy in Jerusalem. "I believe that it would be useful to avoid such a step, which could cause great damage to Kosovo," reads the letter of the Turkish president. if he comes to power, he will review Kosovo's commitment to opening an Embassy in Jerusalem.
