The President of the Republic of Cote D’Ivoire, His Excellency Alassane Ouattara has touched down at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA), Accra on 16 October 2017 to begin a two day state visit.
The visit will be used to inaugurate a joint commission for the implementation of the judgement 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.
The visit is also reciprocal to the one made by the President of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to Cote D’Ivoire in May this year.
His Excellency Alassane Ouattara was met on arrival at the KIA by the President of Ghana and Commander in Chief of the Ghana Armed forces, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, where he inspected a ceremonial Guard of Honour mounted by the Ghana Air force.
As part of the itinerary for the visit, both Presidents will take a ride through some principal streets of Accra, after which they are expected to hold bilateral discussions of mutual interest to both countries at the flagstaff house and later address a joint press conference.
A cross section of Ivorian nationals residing in Ghana was present at the KIA to welcome their head of state alongside drumming and dancing.
