The removal of these countries was necessary for the following reasons. Cambodia and Vietnam were removed because the characterization of these countries is no longer justified in light of the normalization of relations that has taken place between these countries and the United States. Afghanistan was removed because of the departure of troops of the former Soviet Union in 1989 and the subsequent removal of the communist government, and secondly because of the recent downfall of the Taliban regime and the installation of an interim government supportive of democratic principles. China was removed because of the normalization of relations that has taken place between China and the United States and the significant changes in China and the global community.https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2003/05/06/03-11152/rules-on-source-origin-and-nationality-for-commodities-and-services-financed-by-usaid-special-sourceFR-Doc-03-11152
