Ghana Armed Forces train US soldiers

The relationship between Ghana’s Army and the US has been really cooperative, Ghana’s Defence Minister has said.

Scores of soldiers from the United States of America have been trained in jungle warfare by their Ghanaian counterparts.

Ghana’s Defence minister Dominic Nitiwul who disclosed this said that the Ghana Armed Forces have over the years been enjoying financial support and training assistance from the United States and other countries.

“The last time they came to Kenyasi to train and our people taught them jungle warfare. So they learn from us just as we learn from them”.

In his response to questions on the management of the Kofi Annan International Peace Keeping Training Center at the Public Accounts Committee Tuesday, Mr. Nitiwul said there is no need to worry as the relationship between Ghana’s Army and the US has been really cooperative.

“There is really nothing to be worried about, I can assure you. We benefit a lot from them. They train us, and they pay us for just coming to train us. I can say that we appreciate what they have been doing for us over the years. We get support from the US, Germany, Canada and other countries”, he said.

Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) provides training and research in peacekeeping and peace operations. It formally began operations in 2002.
