Rabbani Banned from  Traveling Abroad: Source

KABUL - President Ashraf Ghani on Sunday endorsed credentials from newly-appointed Australian, Qatari and Kyrgyz ambassadors to Afghanistan.
President Ghani accepted credentials of the new ambassadors of Australia, Geoff Tooth, Qatari Ambassador Saeed Mubarak Al Khayarin Al Jajri and the Kyrgyzstan envoy during separate reception ceremonies at the Presidential Palace, a statement from the president’s office said.
It quoted the president as congratulating the new ambassadors and urged further extension in relations between Afghanistan, Australia, Qatar and Kyrgyzstan. The president called the said countries as Afghanistan’s good cooperators.
The events also discussed peace, economic, stability, education and training, elections, terrorism and corruption.
The new ambassadors reaffirmed their countries’ support with the war-hit country in various sectors.
The President Palace had not invited acting foreign minister Salahuddin Rabbani to the meetings and instead his deputy Adrees Zaman was present there.
A well-placed source told Pajhwok Afghan News that Rabbani was not invited to the meetings after he took part in CEO Abdullah Abdullah’s first campaign gathering.
The Presidential Palace also banned Rabbani from traveling abroad and taking part in the upcoming UN meeting.
However, the three new ambassadors held separate meetings with Rabbani at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA).
But Sibghatullah Ahmadi spokesman of MoFA rejected the report says, it is basless. (Pajhwok)
