Afghanistan Designation To Be Changed! – Biden Notifies Congress

( – Few people fully understood how quickly the Taliban would take over Afghanistan after President Joe Biden pulled US troops out of the nation. Now, the commander-in-chief is taking steps to further separate the two countries by removing it from the list of Non-NATO allies.

On Wednesday, July 6, the White House released a statement from Biden to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and President of the Senate, Vice President Kamala Harris, detailing that he will soon “rescind the designation of Afghanistan as a Major Non-NATO Ally.” With this announcement, the list dwindles from 19 to 18 nations in this category. Others include Egypt, Israel, Japan, Pakistan, and South Korea. Taiwan is currently treated as a Major Non-NATO Ally, although it does not have that formal designation.

By losing this status, Afghanistan will no longer be eligible for loans of supplies for research and development from the US or be a place where the US will stockpile war reserves. Additionally, there will no longer be cooperative training between the nations or any purchasing of uranium, among other things.

This is a major blow to the nation of Afghanistan, although it does not come as a surprise after the Taliban continue to restrict women’s rights in the country despite previously saying they would not.
