Taliban on Thursday reacted to US President Joe Biden's decision to rescind Afghanistan’s designation as America's non-NATO major Ally and said that the designation has not benefited the country.
Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said on Twitter that they don’t have a good memory of the designation. However, according to Mujahid, the group seeks good, positive, and reliable diplomatic and commercial relations with every country.
US President Joe Biden has informed the US House of Representatives and US Senate that he wants to rescind Afghanistan from the list of "non-NATO major allies".
In 2011, during former US President Barak Obama’s administration, the United States government, designated Afghanistan as one of "America's non-NATO major ally".
This designation has been given to a list of countries that are not members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), but have strategic relations with the United States.
