Ambassador Richard Grenell confirmed over the weekend that he will not be returning to his post of US Ambassador in Germany after his term as acting Director of National Intelligence expires but will not quit his job as rhe US President’s envoy for Kosovo Richard Grenell.

Grenell confirmed reports in Politico and earlier reports in March this year by the Daily Wire news portal that he would step down. US President Donald Trump called Grenell back to Washington in February to take over as acting head of US intelligence, replacing former acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire. Last week, the U.S. Senate confirmed John Ratcliffe to take over from Grenell.

The ambassador’s spokesman Dick Custin told Radio Free Europe that Grenell will remain President’s Trumps envoy for Kosovo, adding that he is looking forward to the next discussion about the dialogue as soon as the new Kosovo government is confirmed.

The Politico portal quoted German news outlets that said that Grenell will step down as head of the US diplomatic mission in Berlin. Politico asked an embassy spokesperson for a comment and was told that the “embassy’s policy is not to comment on travel or schedules”. “Ambassador Grenell has continued to actively engage on administration priorities on Germany while serving as the acting director of national Intelligence," the unnamed spokesperson said.
