U.S. scolded Spain for withdrawing troops from Kosovo, cables show - Fox News Latino: "United States scolded Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero for withdrawing Spanish troops from Kosovo without consulting with its allies before doing so, according to documents disseminated by WikiLeaks and published in Spain by El Pais.
The complaint was made during a meeting between Zapatero and U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden in the Chilean city of Viña del Mar in March 2009, a few days after the announcement by Defense Minister Carme Chacon of the withdrawal of Spanish troops from Kosovo.
A report by the State Department states that Biden 'criticized the lack of consultation prior to Spain's withdrawal from Kosovo and requested Spain consult the United States earlier and in a more transparent fashion in the future.'
The document says that Zapatero 'defended the decision to withdraw, but allowed that Spain could have consulted earlier with the United States.'"
