Kosovo's newly elected Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj has canceled a visit to the U.S. because he was unable to get a visa. Local media in the capital Pristina reported that the U.S. Embassy had denied the visa request. Haradinaj was supposed to attend events organized by the National Guard's commanding officer in the state.

This procedure is carried on just one time, when the former KLA member applies for the first time for a US visas and then he undergoes a normal process like everyone else," Haradinaj's office reported.
