Jens Stoltenberg He remains in office until 2024. Norway’s NATO chief since 2014 announced on Tuesday that he had been reappointed to the post of secretary general for another year, just days before a crucial Ukraine-focused summit in Vilnius.

“I am honored by the NATO Allies’ decision to extend my term as Secretary General until October 2024,” he tweeted.

“Transatlantic links between Europe and North America have guaranteed our freedom and security for nearly 75 years and, in a more dangerous world, our Alliance is more important than ever“, he added.

The extension, which had been expected for several weeks due to the lack of consensus on the name of a possible successor, was approved during a meeting of the ambassadors of the 31 member countries at the organization’s headquarters in Brussels.

Stoltenberg, 64, who was Norway’s prime minister two decades ago, was appointed on October 1, 2014 for a four-year term. He served two full terms and had already been extended for a year in 2022 after the invasion of Ukraine.
