John Bolton, US National Security Advisor, has postponed a planned visit to Belgrade and Pristina until Kosovo forms a new government and suspends or withdraws the decision on 100 percent import tariffs on goods from Serbia and Bosnia, Pristina media reported on Friday.

The Voice of America (VOA) said it had unofficially learned that the reason for the cancellation was the fact that Kosovo was facing early elections after Ramush Haradinaj resigned as Prime Minister.

 Pristina media reported the visit should have happened in late August or early September. VOA said its sources confirmed the visit was still planned for some time in future but did not get an official confirmation from the White House Council for National Security.

The Pristina KTV television reported it had seen the communication from Washington saying Bolton, one of the first US officials who said that Washington “does not exclude territorial corrections” in solving Belgrade – Pristina relation, was happy about the visit but that it would happen after a new government was formed and the taxes lifted.
