OSLO, March 24. /ITAR-TASS/. Norway's former Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg may take the position of NATO Secretary-General after outgoing Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten reported on Monday.

Stoltenberg's candidacy was supported by Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron and France's President Francois Hollande. Italy's La Repubblica earlier reported that Stoltenberg is also supported by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and US President Barack Obama. Aftenposten noted that Stoltenberg's appointment may be announced as early as on Wednesday, during Obama's visit to Brussels, where the US President will meet with incumbent Secretary-General and NATO member countries.

Other candidates

Anders Fogh Rasmussen's term expires on September 30. The media reported that NATO is willing to decide on Rasmussen's successor before the elections to the European Parliament slated for the end of May.

Among main candidates for the post of NATO Secretary-General are Poland's Foreign Minister Radolsaw Sikorski and former Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini, along with President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso.
