Background: The West German Assistant Secretary of State -- Mr. Alexander Boeker -- is in Accra for a three day visit.
Mr. Boeker was greeted at Accra Airport yesterday (Monday) by the Chief of State Protocol, Mr. K.B. Ayensu, the West German Ambassador to Ghana, Mr. H.G. Steltzer, and West German officials.
The visit is part of a two-week tour of African states. Mr. Boeker has already visited Nigeria where he had talks with top officials. The West German Under Secretary told a airport news conference that the visit would "strengthen the bond of friendship" between West Germany and Ghana.
