Mark Rutte, the outgoing Prime Minister of the Netherlands, will be the next secretary-general of NATO.

The Dutch politician will take on the role from Jens Stoltenberg, who assumed office in 2014.

Mr Rutte’s accession was given the green light after all 32 members of the Western military alliance agreed on his new position.

Hungary and Slovakia endorsed him on June 18, while Romania confirmed its support on June 20 – a few days after the country’s president Klaus Iohannis withdrew his own candidacy.

Mr Rutte will take on this role by October 2 – at a critical time for geopolitical stability.
