Another year at NATO helm for Rasmussen
Anders Fogh Rasmussen’s contract as the Secretary-General of NATO has been extended for another year.
The 28 NATO nations voted unanimously today to give him a one-year extension when his first term as NATO chief expires on 1 August next year. The former prime minister is now slated to hold the top post until 1 August 2014.
Fogh Rasmussen was recently quoted as saying he would take on another year if his NATO colleagues there so desired. The job as NATO chief generally runs for four years, with the possibility of renewal. Rasmussen is the first Dane to lead the alliance.
