Their meeting comes one day ahead of the now-cancelled White House summit between Kosovo and Serbia.
Koha newspaper contacted Cakaj on Thursday to ask regarding indictments against Kosovo leaders but he refused to answer. The paper related his US visit to the summit.
Cakaj’s boss, Prime Minister Edi Rama has been repeatedly accused by multiple actors of supporting and pushing for a land swap deal agreed by Kosovo and Serbia’s presidents.
