Kosovo: Grenell Accuses Kurti of “Anti-American”

Former US envoy for the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue Richard Grenell sharply criticized the leader of the Vetëvendosje Movement, Albin Kurti. In a Twitter post, Grenell referred to Kurti as a man who has always been anti-American. The post was made due to Kurti’s stance in reviewing the decision to establish a Kosovo embassy in Jerusalem.

“The new anti-American leader of Kosovo’s left wing, Albin Kurti, has been against US policies suggested by Bill Clinton, George Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump. He is always anti-American. “Biden’s team must stop him,” Grenell was quoted as saying by President Jake Sullivan.

Shortly afterwards, Grenell re-accused Kurti in a new Twitter post.

“Albin Kurti threw tear gas at the Kosovo parliament in an attempt to stop President Obama from supporting the demarcation with Montenegro. “Joe Biden also urged Kurt at the time to support the demarcation – and he turned to terrorism instead.” Grenell wrote on Twitter.

Grenell was appointed former President Trump’s special envoy for the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue. Through mediation, Kosovo and Serbia sign several commitments to the September 4 agreement in the White House. One of the main points of engagement was that Kosovo would receive recognition from Israel and would have to open its embassy in Jerusalem. The two countries established diplomatic relations in early February.
