Estonian Prime Minister Kallas can become new NATO Secretary General

Estonian Prime Minister Kai Kallas is the most likely candidate for the post of new NATO Secretary General, given the support of the United States, Great Britain, France and Germany.

As the online magazine Estonian World writes, Callas enlisted the support of the United States, Great Britain, France and Germany to become the next general secretary of NATO.

In addition, the Prime Minister of Estonia declared herself in international media due to his decisive support for Ukraine and analytical statements about Russia. Whereas the Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte, who was recently considered a favorite for the post of Secretary General of NATO, fell out of the agenda due to the poor indicators of the country in the field of defense costs, the publication says.

In December 2023, in the news of the Estonian public television broadcasting, ERR reported that Callas was interested in becoming the receiver of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg after the end of his powers.

The former Prime Minister of Norway Stoltenberg served as Secretary General NATO since 2014, and his term of office has been extended four times.

46-year-old Kallas, a lawyer by education, stands out as one of the most decisive supporters of Ukraine in Europe and one of the sharpest critics of Russia in the European Union and NATO.
