New Delhi: Ghana Army chief Major General Joseph Narh Adinkrah will arrive in India on a four-day goodwill visit on Monday.

The visit of General Joseph Narh Adinkrah is expected to further boost the defence cooperation between the two nations.

India has historical and traditional relations with Ghana, based on common ideals and principles arising from a significant legacy of social, cultural and political struggles, along with a shared commitment to democracy.

According to the Defence Ministry, defence cooperation with Ghana as a part of defence diplomacy, has been an important tool towards enhancing this friendship.

The defence cooperation with Ghana has existed since 1957 and Indian armed forces have played an important role in laying the foundation of all the three services of the Ghana armed forces.

The armed forces of the two nations have been comprehensively cooperating in the field of military training, United Nations Peacekeeping Operations, training and participation of observers in exercises.

During his visit, Major General Joseph Narh Adinkrah will be meeting senior Defence Ministry and military officials.

Enhancing military to military co-operation is likely to get prominence during his discussions with senior officials.

He will also visit United Service Institution (USI) and the Centre for UN Peacekeeping (CUNPK), New Delhi.
