The Minister of National Security Albert Kan-Dapaah on Thursday delivered a special message from the President of Ghana Akufo-Addo to Mali’s interim leader Colonel Assimï Goita, in Bamako.

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, 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 advisor to the Foreign Ministry, Benedict Dere, executive secretary of the Accra Initiative, and Napoleon Abdulai, Ghana’s Ambassador in Mali.
