NATO – Extension of Jens Stoltenberg’s term of office (12 December 2017)


Statement by Jean-Yves Le Drian

I wish Jens Stoltenberg every success, following the decision to extend his term as secretary-general of NATO.

Since his appointment in 2014, he has been resolutely committed to strengthening NATO’s capacity to adapt in the face of the challenges posed by our strategic environment.

The secretary-general’s personal investment has also been key to maintaining unity and solidarity between allies.

I therefore look forward to continuing to work with Jens Stoltenberg.
