The President of Burkina Faso, Roch Marc Christian Kaboré is in Ghana for a two day working visit.

Mr Kaboré's visit would seek to bolster ties between Ghana and Burkina Faso, as well as explore opportunities that both nations can collaboration for the good of their people, as well as solidify some decisions that were taken between both governments last year.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo received Mr Kaboré at the Jubilee House on Tuesday after the Burkinabe President had inspected a full guard of Honour mounted by the Ghana Armed Forces.

The President Akufo-Addo thanked the Burkinabe President for visiting Ghana and for the reception accorded him when he paid a visit to his country last year.

President Akufo-Addo expressed his sympathies as well as that of Ghanaians for the casualties of the recent terror attacks in the Burkinabe capital, Ouagadougou, and condemned the act.

He pledged Ghana's support for Burkina Faso's efforts to reign in extremism and terrorism to make West Africa safe.

Both leaders are engaged in bilateral talks aimed at boosting the socio-economic development of the two states. The talks are expected to culminate in the signing of cooperation agreements.
