Ukraine To Establish Embassy In Ghana
As part of its efforts to increase its presence in Africa, Ukraine intends to open an embassy in Ghana in the near future.
When he met with Shirley Ayorkor Botchway, the foreign minister of Ghana, in Accra, Dmytro Kuleba, the minister of foreign affairs of Ukraine, revealed this.
The head of Ukrainian diplomacy is currently on the first-ever trip to Africa as part of his duties as the head of the MFA of Ukraine.
According to a report on the MFA website of Ukraine, Mr. Kuleba thoroughly briefed his Ghanaian colleague on the efforts being made by his nation to free Ukrainian territories from Russian control.
He commended Ghana for its support of the UN and other international organizations’ resolutions that sought to restore Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity as well as for its solidarity with that country.
The minister highlighted that Ghana and Ukraine want to begin a new, high-quality collaboration based on mutual respect, support, and benefit.
“As part of the implementation of the African strategy, which was developed at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the instructions of President Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine is expanding its presence in Africa. We reached an agreement with the Ghanaian side: we plan to open a Ukrainian embassy in Ghana in the near future. The establishment of a diplomatic presence in Accra will give an impetus to the development of political contacts, trade, investments, cultural exchanges, and cooperation in the field of education,” Mr. Kuleba said.
The approaches to further Ukraine and Ghana’s cooperation in the areas of security, cyber security, digital transformation, and agriculture were thoroughly reviewed by the ministers.
They decided to begin making plans for the Joint Commission on Trade and Economic Cooperation.
They also discussed methods to ensure that Ghanaian students can once again receive a secure education in Ukrainian universities.
