Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre believes Jens Stoltenberg’s term extension as NATO chief is a recognition of his solid work.
“The fact that all NATO member countries want Jens Stoltenberg to continue (working) as Secretary-General in these turbulent times is a recognition of the solid job he has done and the importance he has for NATO,” Støre told NTB.
“Never before has the Alliance been stronger, and never before in the Alliance’s history has unity been more important,” Støre added.
“President Biden raised the issue at the end of his speech. He said that he had talked to several people, including Stoltenberg, and wanted to suggest that he extend his term by one year. It received immediate applause,” Støre said.
Stoltenberg also received many compliments from the leaders at the summit.
