The Dutch Broadcasting Corporation reported, citing sources in Brussels and the United States, that the appointment of a new NATO Secretary General will take longer than expected.

The authority said that outgoing Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte is “a strong candidate for the position of Secretary-General of NATO,” and it was expected at the end of last month that he would be appointed quickly. But Hungary said it would not support Rutte's candidacy for this position. Romania also plans to put forward its candidate for the position of Secretary-General, the country's current president, Klaus Iohannis.

The sources stated that, against this backdrop, it is now likely that the appointment of a new NATO Secretary-General will take longer.

Politico newspaper said that two-thirds of NATO countries, including US President Joe Biden, are nominating the Dutch Prime Minister for the position of the organization's new Secretary-General, and in order to make a decision, there is a need for unanimity.

Britain , Germany and France announced their support for Rutte, while Romanian media reported, citing government sources, Bucharest’s intention to propose its candidate, current President Klaus Iohannis.
