With Jens Stoltenberg announcing his plans to step down, the former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is interested in applying for the post of NATO Secretary-General.


Speaking in an interview with The Guardian today, Thursday, February 23, former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that he is interested in applying for the post of Secretary-General of NATO.

“I see myself as a candidate. This is a very good position, an important one. NATO is now stronger than ever”, said Mr Johnson. According to the ex-premier, Ukraine will join NATO in the future”.

Also in an interview with Sky News, the politician called on Britain to “break the ice” and send the fighter jets that Kyiv is asking for to Ukraine.

Earlier, the DPA agency in Germany reported that the current NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg had no plans to extend his term of office. He has been in the position for almost nine years and has already extended his powers three times.

Boris Johnson resigned from the office of UK Prime Minister in July last year amid a series of scandals involving his partying in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic and others.
