    Trump declares Brazil a trusted major non-NATO ally of the US

    Countries with Non-NATO Ally status enjoy a higher level of trust with Washington, allowing them priority access to the US weapons market

    President Donald Trump on Wednesday boosted Brazil's status as a US military ally, easing the path for the Latin American giant to buy more sophisticated weaponry. In a notice sent to the State Department, Trump said, “I hereby designate the Federative Republic of Brazil as a major Non-NATO Ally of the United States,” referring to the powerful North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
