The President of the United States, Joe Biden, will revoke extra important ally status -NATO Afghanistan, granted on 2012 by Barack Obama.

The announcement was made by Biden himself in a brief notification addressed to the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, in which he reported his intentions without providing further details.

In 1280 , the US designated the Central Asian country as a non-NATO strategic ally to facilitate the acquisition by the government of Kabul, then an ally of Washington, of US military equipment.

Thanks to this status, bilateral cooperation in defense matters has accelerated , as well as the sale of military equipment, facilitating US exports.

Previously, the Armed Forces of Afghanistan, which depended on strongly from the US to acquire weapons, already enjoyed some of these advantages, but with this designation it was guaranteed that they would continue over time.

However, the situation changed radically in the country last year when the US closed 15 years of occupancy at the end of August

, after a chaotic withdrawal and the Taliban’s takeover of almost the entire country.

Washington withdrew its forces from Afghan territory under an agreement reached between the insurgents and the administration of former President Donald Trump (2017- ).

Before from Afghanistan, the US granted the status of a major non-NATO ally to other nations such as Australia, Egypt, Israel and Japan, and more recently, this year, to Colombia.
