WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden said on Thursday it remains to be seen whether it's time for a British secretary general of NATO, adding that the organization's allies need to discuss candidates for the leadership role.
During a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak at the White House, Biden was asked if it's time for a British NATO secretary general. He responded: "Maybe."
Sunak had been expected to try to win Biden's backing for defense minister Ben Wallace's bid to become the next NATO chief.
