Aleksandar Vucic, Serbia’s President, asked the UK ambassador to Kosovo Nicholas Abbott whose elections did Albin Kurti and his Vetëvendosje (Self-determination) movement win in Kosovo after the Albanian flag was posted during the Kurti – Abbott meeting in Pristina, the Beta news agency reported on Wednesday.
Vucic tweeted in Serbian Cyrillic that he would continue to ask Abbott until he received an answer.
“Question for the UK ambassador to Pristina: Whose elections Kurti and his party won and whose flag was it under which you, Your Excellency, were so proudly photographed with Kurti? I’ll be asking you that until I get an answer,” Vucic wrote.
Питање за амбaсадора ВБ у Приштини: На чијим изборима су победили Курти и његова партија и које државе је застава пред којом сте се, Ваша Екселенцијо, поносно сликали са Куртијем? Питаћу Вас ово све док не добијем одговор. pic.twitter.com/C1z7waE8qa

The answer came almost immediately. The UK embassy also tweeted its reply, saying “we did not choose how our interlocutor, acting in a party capacity, arranged his rooms.
A recent photo of the Ambassador meeting one of the political leaders in Kosovo has attracted attention regionally. It is the Embassy’s job to engage with leading political actors in Kosovo. We did not choose how our interlocutor, acting in a party capacity, arranged his rooms.

KoSSev: Earlier this month, however, the US Ambassador to Pristina, Philip Kosnett and German Ambassador to Pristina, Christian Heldt also met with Kurti, but avoided taking photos next to the Albanian flag in his office, posting joint photos with Kurti in front of his party premises.
