Anders was the negotiator for Denmark on the Maastricht Treaty. As Denmark's Prime Minister he subsequently negotiated the EU Treaties, and as the NATO Secretary General he was involved in the negotiations around the crises in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Somalia, and Libya.
He knows how to deal with challenges - his new strategic concepts for a European structure encountered strong opposition at the time. Whatever the challenge, he has demonstrated consistency and strategic negotiation skills, particularly with his approach to Russia.
Anders Fogh Rasmussen currently works on uniting democratic nations and implementing free-trade zones. He is certainly one of the most experienced negotiation professionals at the highest level.
