Leaders of NATO countries are set to agree at a summit Thursday on Jens Stoltenberg, the military alliance’s secretary general, staying on in his post possibly for another year despite his being picked as Norway’s next central bank chief.

Senior officials from several members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization have held talks about Stoltenberg prolonging his mandate, as he leads the alliance’s response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, according to a western diplomat who asked not to be named discussing a confidential issue.
