Newshub18 :Joe Biden is active in removing the name of Taliban-ruled Afghanistan from the list of allies
President Joe Biden has said in a letter to Congress that he wants to officially remove Taliban-ruled Afghanistan from its list of non-NATO allies. In a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the President wrote: “I am issuing a notice to remove Afghanistan from the list of non-NATO allies in accordance with the amendment to USC 2321 under Section 517 of the Foreign Aid Act, 1971.” In 2012, the United States designated Afghanistan as a major non-NATO ally, paving the way for the two countries to maintain defense and economic ties.
The title was announced by then-US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during a visit to Kabul. If the House of Representatives approves the proposal, Afghanistan will be deprived of US defense equipment, defense research and space technology assistance. In other words, the Taliban rulers of that country will not get any additional benefits in defense and technology from America. NATO allies in the United States are bound by a joint defense agreement, but non-NATO allies do not have a mutual defense guarantee. In addition, private companies in designated countries may bid on contracts for the maintenance and repair of U.S. military equipment abroad.
The status of the ally enabled Afghanistan to receive military training and assistance, including the sale of military equipment, even after NATO troops left the country. With military and economic aid cut off, Biden’s country is set to take away Afghanistan’s capabilities. According to the State Department, if the status of Afghanistan is revoked, the United States will have 16 major non-NATO alliesThey are: Argentina, Australia, Bahrain, Brazil, Colombia, Egypt, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Qatar, South Korea, Thailand and Tunisia.
