A two-day regional summit for state leaders in the Western Balkans held in Sarajevo this week will have two empty seats on Monday, as both Kosovo and Albania declined their invitations to attend.

Political officials in Kosovo and Albania announced last weekend that their countries’ representatives will not participate in the South East European Countries Cooperation Process, SEECP, summit, to be held in Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina across Monday and Tuesday.

Kosovo’s president, Hashim Thaci, cancelled his plan to visit Sarajevo due to what he called a “denigrating invitation” he received prior to attending the summit from the president of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

“Besides the willingness and readiness to participate in the South East European Countries Cooperation Process summit, the denigrating invitation from the current head of the Bosnia and Herzegovina’s presidency made it impossible for Kosovo’s participation and representation at this meeting,” wrote Thaci.
