Kishida Fumio, Japan’s Prime Minister, arrived in Ghana on Monday for the second phase of his African tour.
Fumio met with Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo, and both agreed to keep pushing for reforms in the UN Security Council.
Non-permanent members of the Security Council include Japan and Ghana.
The Ghanaian President went on to say that the current Security Council permanent members do not reflect actual realities, and that reform must be encouraged.
Both heads of state also agreed to work closely together on the issue of Sudan, where military clashes have been ongoing for a third week.
The Japanese Prime Minister expressed hope that his recent visit will strengthen bilateral collaboration in a variety of areas, including the economy, development, and human resources.
