NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg accepted the ''Diplomat of the Year'' award from Foreign Policy magazine at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday night (12 November 2019). Accepting the award from editor-in-chief Jonathan Tepperman, Mr. Stoltenberg made a case for "relentless transatlantic diplomacy, backed by credible transatlantic defence". Calling NATO "a unique diplomatic 'force multiplier'", he said: "when 29 nations speak with one voice, their voice is more powerful than any other in the world".
