ACCRA– President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says Ghana fully supports the ongoing diplomatic process being employed to restore relations between the two Koreas.
Noting that the Republic of Korea (ROK) and Democartic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) are at a critical turn in their respective histories, he said here Monday that Ghana endorsed every positive step taken to restore balance in that area.
Speaking when he received the credentials of the new ROK ambassador to Ghana, Kim Sungsoo, at his Jubilee House office here Monday, he recalled the more than four decades of cordial relations between Ghana and the ROK and said his government was committed to strengthening the bonds of friendship between both nations.
The President added that it was the resolve of his administration to create channels for economic exchanges between Ghanaian and Korean businesses. Such interface, he said, would encourage and deepen economic ties between the two countries to the benefit of their citizens.
I think that is the way forward in strengthening of our relations, and I am hoping that the years you are here, we are going to witness a significant advancement of our social, cultural; and economic relations between our two countries, he told Kim.
Applauding the level of development in the Republic of Korea in the past decades, President Akufo-Addo said the Asian country had presented an ideal model for developing countries like Ghana.
Kim commended the President and the people of Ghana for the vibrant and flourishing democracy that had made the country a model in Africa and beyond.
