He’s Norway’s biggest Trump favorite: Tonight he’s going back into the heat.
Washington (Netavision) Monday night, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg was one of the first international leaders to meet with President Joe Biden at the White House.
But Stoltenberg also has good relations with US presidents.
Barack Obama received Stoltenberg’s support when he served as NATO’s general secretary, and later President Donald Trump spoke fondly of the Norwegian NATO leader. In the past, Stoltenberg and Biden have spoken on the phone together on a number of occasions, showing the close relationship between the two.
– I would like to thank you for your leadership and your personal diplomacy over the past few years. You were precious, Biden said in connection with a phone conversation the two had in January this year.
Everything is in place until the early and close relationship between the two during Biden’s presidency at the beginning, and until Stoltenberg retires in 2022.
The purpose of the meeting is to prepare for the NATO summit in Brussels on June 14 and for Stoltenberg’s strategic changes for NATO over the next decade.
Stoltenberg met with several heads of state in the two weeks leading up to the recent Security Coalition summit in Brussels. At the summit, the leaders of the member states will adopt the NATO 2030 reform package, where climate change is also a theme.
