NATO prolongs Stoltenberg's term until 2020

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg was given two more years at the head of the world's biggest military alliance, NATO said in a statement, adding that the former Norwegian prime minister's term was prolonged until Sept. 30, 2020.

It said the allies "congratulate the Secretary-General and have full confidence in his ability to continue his dedicated work to advance NATO's adaptation to the security challenges of the 21st century."

Stoltenberg's term at NATO's helm since 2014 has been marked by a spike in security challenges.
