In his remarks, Mr. Lu Kun praised the role that GHACHIFA played in deepening the time-honoured friendship and fostering genuine and dynamic people-to-people diplomacy between the two countries.
He said, “there is no such thing as a long distance between bosom friends”. Even though China and Ghana are geographically far apart, our longstanding friendship has endured and will continue to flourish in the years to come,” since it is rooted in shared historical experiences and practical cooperation.
