  1. What is the background for this dispute? It is again about the ethnicity of the candidates?
    I hope this is not the case and not a continuation of Mr. Abdullah’s approach when he was in his previous post as foreign minister. It is a fact that he was sending primarily people from a specific ethnic background, his friends and family members to the embassies and Afghan consulates abroad and hiring at civil servants at the department of state (foreign ministry).

    There is not much time left to save this country. I wish the principles in Afghan government start to do some work and stop their tribal mentality.
