Statement by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel on the Selection of Former Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg as the Next NATO Secretary General


Location: Washington, DC

"I welcome the selection of Norway's former Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg to be NATO's next secretary general. He will succeed current Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen on Oct. 1, 2014. Former Prime Minister Stoltenberg will bring strong credentials and experience to the alliance at a critically important time. NATO has been and continues to be a force for peace, prosperity, and freedom not only in Europe, but around the world, and the United States will continue to strongly support the alliance, and all of its member nations. America's commitment to NATO's collective defense is firm and resolute.

"I want to express my deepest gratitude and appreciation to NATO Secretary General Rasmussen for his many years of strong leadership, for his commitment to strengthening the alliance, and for his continued hard work in bringing a critical NATO summit together this coming September in Wales."
