Ghana stands with Turkey in fight against Terrorism-Mahama

President John Dramani Mahama has pledged Ghana’s support to help Turkey fight terrorism.

He made the statement while having discussions with Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdorgan.

“We stand in solidarity with Turkey on the issue of terrorism and the situation in Syria…we also condemn all the terrorist attacks that have taken place against Syria,” President Mahama indicated.

President Tayyip Erdorgan is on a two-day working visit to Ghana.

He was accompanied by his wife, Mrs Emine Erdogan and more than 150 business and government officials.

Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur received him and his delegation at the Jubilee Lounge of the Kotoka International Airport, early Tuesday.

President Tayyip Erdorgan’s visit is expected to strengthen bilateral relations and enhance economic cooperation between Ghana and Turkey.

The Turkish President welcomed President Mahama’s pledge and stated that all countries across the globe must rise against terrorism because terrorism does not recognise religion or ethnicity.

Addressing the Members of Parliament as part of his visit, President Tayyip Erdorgan also applauded Ghana’s democratic credentials.

Speaking about trade, the Speaker of Parliament, Edward Doe Ajaho said Ghana is proud to be the fourth largest trading partner of Turkey in Sub Saharan Africa.

President Erdogan’s visit follows a 2013 visit to Ankara and Istanbul by President Mahama and an earlier 2011 visit by former Turkish President, Abdullah Gul.

The Turkish First lady, Emine Erdogan, is also expected to hold discussions with Mrs Lordina Mahama and visit the Osu Children’s Home.
