Politics Visit Ouattara

Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo held bilateral talks with his Ivorian counterpart, Alassane Ouattara, here on Monday, stressing the need to bring both nations closer.

Akufo-Addo acknowledged the political will of Ouattara to deepen and strengthen the bonds of friendship with Ghana.

He said there was a bright future if both countries were able to get their various darts in the correct row, adding that Ghanaians continued to be very supportive of all the initiatives there were to improve ties with Cote d’Ivoire.

The Ghanaian president applauded his counterpart for his statesmanship in the aftermath of the verdict passed by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) on the delimitation of the maritime boundaries of the two countries.

“Your statesmanship, friendship and regard for the interests of our two countries made it possible for us to overcome that delicate moment, and use it as a basis for forging even stronger relations between us,” Akufo-Addo said.

Ouattara is in Ghana on a two-day official visit.

Prior to Ouattara’s departure on Tuesday, the two leaders will sign an agreement and inaugurate a joint commission for the implementation of the recent ITLOS judgment on the delimitation of the maritime boundaries between Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire. Enditem
