The United States Assistant Secretary of State for Africa, Mr. Nat Davis, arrived in Ghana?
The United States Assistant Secretary of State for Africa, Mr. Nat Davis, arrived in Ghana on Thursday (8 May) for a five-day visit. Mr. Davis, who was appointed on April 2, was the U.S. Ambassador in Chile when, with alleged CIA support, the Government of the late President Salvador Allende was overthrown in 1973.
He is expected to visit Ghana's Head of State, Colonel Acheampong.
At a meeting in Addis Ababa in February, the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) complained about Mr. Davis's appointment. This was in view of his alleged connections with the C.I.A.
The U.S. Congress ignored the O.A.U.'s objections.
While in Ghana, Mr. Davis hopes to improve the bilateral agreements existing between Ghana and the U.S.
