Ghana-Peru sign agreement on political consultations


Ghana and Peru have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the establishment of political consultations between the two countries. The agreement was signed on Monday, March 25, 2024 at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration in Accra, Ghana.

Ghana’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Shirley Ayorkor Botchway signed for Ghana whilst the Ambassador Plenipotentiary and Extraordinary of the Republic of Peru in the Republic of Ghana,  Rosa Liliana Gómez Cárdenas de Weston signed for Peru and witnessed by Hon. Ghassan Yared, Honorary Consul of Peru in Ghana.

The agreement is valid for five years and will seek to strengthen the bond of friendship and cooperation between Ghana and Peru in areas of mutual interest. This is to be achieved through holding periodical consultations and exchanges of views at various levels on bilateral relations and international affairs of mutual interest.

In addition, the agreement reaffirms the conviction that the development of friendly relations between Ghana and Peru will contribute to peace and international security, the consolidation of confidence and international cooperation.

The historical and cultural bonds between Peru and Ghana have their roots in the cultural heritage produced by the blending of cultures during the Spanish presence in America through the Viceroyalty of Peru, where a huge number of African inhabitants were brought in an outrageous form to this continent.

Ghana and Peru established diplomatic relationship 36 years ago in 1987, enhancing that relationship when Peru opened its Embassy in 2014 and now improved by the signing of this document.
