The President of the Republic of Cote D’Ivoire, His Excellency Alassane Ouattara on Tuesday 17 October, 2017, departed the shores of Ghana back to his homeland after a two day state visit.
His Excellency Alassane Ouattara’s arrival to Ghana on 16 October, 2017 was to deepen the already existing relation between the two countries. To that effect, a bilateral agreement was signed, with the inauguration of a joint commission to ensure the implementation of the recent judgment passed by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) on the delimitation of the maritime boundaries of Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire
Before boarding his flight for departure, HE Alassane Ouattara inspected a guard of honour which was mounted for him by the Air Force amid the sounding of the national anthems of both countries by the Air Force Regimental Band.
Alassane Ouattara was seen off at Kotoka International Airport (KIA) by Ghanaian counterpart His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, some Government Officials and members of the Diplomatic Corp.
The visit was a reciprocal one to the visit made to Cote D’Ivoire by the president Akufo-Addo, in May this year at the start of his tour of the countries of the West.
