The relations between President Ashraf Ghani and Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani have always been tense, a source told 1TV.
President Ghani has had uneasy relations with his cabinet member and he even once had called for his resignation from the position, a source close to the president said,requesting anonymity.
"Ghani has repeatedly refused to meet Salahuddin Rabbani because Rabbani was discussing with him regarding his personal demands and the appointment of his close people in the government institutions, not about the foreign policy of the country," it said.
It comes after Rabbani and two other cabinet members were disqualified by the parliament on Saturday over failure to implement less than 70 percent of 2015 budget.
Despite president considered the summoning of the cabinet members 'unjustifiable', particularly in case of foreign minister, Jamiat-e-Islami party chaired by Rabbani said that his disqualification was a political act.
“The Foreign Minister (Salahuddin Rabbani) was dismissed not because of lack of performance but he was summoned as result of a political act and intrigue of certain circles.” the party said in a statement.
When reached for comment, Ghani's deputy spokesman Shah Hussain Murtazawi, rejected claims by the source, adding relations between the president and Rabbani have been friendly.
