Reports that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo refused to meet with Skender Hyseni in Washington sparked a reaction by the Belgrade-Pristina chief negotiator.
Skender Hyseni, who is currently in the US capital for consultations, issued a statement that he had never requested a meeting with the US Secretary of State, and what is reported in the media regarding Mike Pompeo’s alleged refusal to meet with him only existed in the imagination of the media.
“The least I can say is that the pompous title “Pompeo refused to meet with the State Coordinator for the Dialogue” sounds utterly ridiculous and extremely unprofessional, when such a meeting has never been requested and it would not even be the right time to request it”. Continuing, Hyseni states that “since yesterday, I have denied reports that I was expecting such a meeting”. /ibna
