US President Barack Obama has signed an official order for the Guantanamo Bay detention facility to be closed within the next year.

The newly-inaugurated US president inked three new executive orders earlier on Thursday, one of which requires that the infamous Cuba-based prison be shut down.

The move comes on the second full day of Obama serving in the White House and on the heels of his promise to take a “practical, pragmatic approach to foreign policy.”

The orders will also shut down CIA detention centers worldwide as well as establish an interagency task force and a procedure to decide on how to go forward with the detainees.

All US interrogators will also be required to adhere to the rules set forth by the Army Field Manual.
