The job of Alliance secretary general after Jens Stoltenberg’s departure could be filled by European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen or UK Department of Defense chief Ben Wallace, the military expert says Yevgeny Mikhailov at Ura.ru. .
According to him, the candidacy of Estonian Prime Minister Kai Kallas cannot be taken seriously, as well as that of Canadian Finance Minister Chrysti Freeland.
“So the main confrontation will be between von der Leyen and Wallace,” Mikhailov believes.
The expert believes that the head of the EC will not be able to cope with this role, since he does not have enough professional experience. The analyst added that Ursula von der Leyen was Germany’s defense minister and the armed forces under her leadership were not ready to defend themselves against external aggression.
