The Minister of National Security, Mr Albert Kan Dapaah, on Thursday, delivered a special message from the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to Mali’s Interim President, Colonel Assimï Goita, in Bamako.
Mr Kan-Dapaah led a delegation from Accra, which held extensive discussions behind closed doors with Col. Goita on security in West Africa and the Sahel.
Speaking to the media after the meeting, Mr Kan-Dapaah said Ghana has had long historical and bilateral relations with Mali dating back to the early post-colonial years and was therefore interested in the welfare and progress of the Malian people.
“We did talk about how we can be of help to each other because a fire in your neighbour’s house has to be of concern to you,” he said.
Col. Goita, he said, extended “warm greetings” to President Akufo-Addo, adding that Ghana looked forward to further engagements with Mali.
Members of the delegation included Maj. Gen Adu-Amanfoh, Ambassador Kwabena Osei-Danquah, Special Adviser to the Foreign Ministry, Mr Benedict Dere, Executive Secretary of the Accra Initiative, and Mr. Napoleon Abdulai, Ghana’s Ambassador in Mali.
