Belongs to Northern Alliance. Mustafa Kazemi's cousins S. Mujtaba Hashemi and Muslim are Afghan trade representatives in Germany and Dubai respectively. His other two cousins are trade representatives in Mashhad of Iran. And another one of his cousins, Mr. Daleri is the chief of customs in Kabul. As if the above were not enough to give full control of the Afghan commerce to one family, the Minister's brother-in-law has been made head of the Chambers of Commerce. Extending the family's area of influence further, yet another cousin of the minister has been appointed to head the Food Supply Office.
