Foreign Secretary William Hague said:
I welcome today’s announcement of Jens Stoltenberg as NATO’s next Secretary General.
Jens will take up his new role shortly after this year’s NATO summit in Wales. I look forward to working with him and other Allies to shape NATO’s future. Events in Ukraine remind us that NATO has a vital role in ensuring the collective security of all members of the alliance.
