Afghan President Ashraf Ghani in a delegation of high ranking governmental officials travelled to Iran on Sunday upon the official invitation of Iran’s President.
According to a statement from Presidential Office, Afghan President will meet his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani and other officials on his two day visit to Iran.
Reports suggest that foreign ministers will sign a cooperation agreement between Kabul and Tehran in presence of the two countries leaders.
Ghani is accompanied by Second Deputy of the CEO Mohammad Mohaqeq, Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani, National Security Advisor Mohammad Hanif Atmar, Finance Minister Eklil Hakimi, Mines & Petroleum Minister Dawoud Shah Saba, Refugees & Repatriation Minister Sayed Hussain Alemi Balkhi, Presidential Administrative Directorate Abdul Salam Rahimi and Presidential Spokesman Ajmal Obaid Abedi.
The visit was scheduled to take place last month, but was postponed due to the avalanches in a number of provinces in Afghanistan which claimed lives of hundreds.
