MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos declared Friday his country would join NATO next week as the alliance’s first global partner in Latin America.

"Next week we will formalize Colombia's entry into NATO in the global partner category. We will be the only country in Latin America to enjoy this privilege," he tweeted.

NATO is a US-led military alliance encompassing 29 member states, the latest addition being the small Balkan nation of Montenegro in 2017.

It also cooperates with so-called global partners on an individual basis. They include Afghanistan, Australia, Iraq, Japan, South Korea, Mongolia, New Zealand, and Pakistan.
