Richard Grenell said that "he cannot wait to continue working with Kosovo".
"The Constitutional Court has made a decision. In order to ensure peace and stability and support the integrity of Kosovo's judicial system, everyone must respect the court's decision. I can't wait to continue my work with the people of Kosovo and their government," Grenell said.
A press release said that the Constitutional Court unanimously ruled that a new government can be formed without dissolving parliament, adding that the temporary ban has been lifted allowing Hoti to form his cabinet.
