United States congratulates Ghana on independence anniversary

Accra, March 6, GNA – The Embassy of the United States of America (USA), on behalf of the people of the United States, has congratulated the government and people of Ghana on the occasion of the country’s 58th independence anniversary.

A statement from the Public Affairs section of the US Embassy in Accra signed by Joyce O. Asiedu and copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA), said the United States established diplomatic relations with Ghana in 1957 when Ghana gained its independence.

‘The United States has enjoyed good relations with Ghana at a nonofficial, people-to-people level since Ghana’s independence. Thousands of Ghanaians have been educated in the United States, and vice versa. Close relations are maintained between educational and scientific institutions, and cultural links are strong. Together, we are translating those shared values into action.

It said the U.S and Ghana shared a long history of promoting democracy, human rights, and the rule of law, and that the partnership between the two countries was strong because to this day they shared a commitment to democratic values, the rule of law, and economic development.

‘Ghana and the United States continue to strengthen our partnership in many areas.   For instance, the militaries of our two countries have cooperated in numerous joint training exercises through the U.S. Africa Command and are working to jointly address maritime and other regional security issues’, the statement said.

It added that through the Young African Leaders, Power Africa, Feed the Future and Partnership for Growth initiatives, the U.S. was pleased to work side by side with Ghana to broaden and deepen our longstanding friendship.

‘On this occasion, the Embassy of the United States of America wishes all Ghanaians a joyful, and festive celebration. The United States looks forward to building upon our strong partnership in the years to come’, it stated.
