US President Joe Biden will on Thursday inform Congress of his intention to designate Kenya as a major non-NATO ally.

According to White House, the move will see Kenya become the first country to receive the status as a major non-NATO ally.

“In a powerful symbol of the close relationship between the United States and Kenya, today President Biden is informing Congress he intends to designate Kenya as a major non-NATO ally,” read a statement from the White House.

The designation is granted by the United States to countries with close and strategic working relationships with the U.S. military and defense civilians.

“The United States has a deep respect for Kenya’s contributions to global peace and security.  This is the first designation of a sub-Saharan Africa nation as a Major Non-NATO Ally.”
