(ANSA) – WASHINGTON, 23 SEPTEMBER – Joe Biden has revoked the status of “strategic ally” not a member of NATO from Afghanistan. A measure announced by the American president last June. The special status was awarded to the country in 2012, by then President Barack Obama, as a “strategic ally”.
Afghanistan has received military assistance and training for years. Since the withdrawal of all US and NATO troops in the summer of 2012 and the return to power of the Taliban, Washington and the Atlantic Alliance had suspended all support in security. (HANDLE).
