The Minister of Foreign Affairs, João Gomes Cravinho, and the Minister of Defense, Helena Carreiras, will start today a two-day visit to Ghana, where they will participate in a joint meeting with their Ghanaian counterparts.

On the agenda of their joint visit to Ghana, Gomes Cravinho and Helena Carreiras will meet with their counterparts Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey and Dominic Nitiwul.

The meeting, in a “2+2” format, will be “an opportunity to discuss the situation in the Sahel and the Gulf of Guinea, as well as to discuss regional and international cooperation, including bilaterally, but also within the European Union and the United Nations,” the ministries explained in a statement.

During the visit, the two leaders will also be received by the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, in an audience in the capital, Accra.

The two ministers will also be received by the Portuguese Navy ship NRP Setubal, which is passing through Ghana as part of the Open Sea mission, and will visit the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Traning Center.

The head of Portuguese diplomacy will continue his tour of two other African countries, passing through Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso until Thursday.
