Ghana and the Republic of Angola announced on Tuesday the reset in motion of a joint inter- governmental commission for cooperation between the two African countries.

The commission would serve as a privileged tool to reflect study and submit proposals on how to establish a mutually beneficial partnership between the two countries, a senior Ghanaian official told Xinhua late Tuesday evening.

The decision was made at the end of a two-day official visit here by Angolan President Jose Eduardo Dos Santos, accompanied by his wife Ana Dos Santos and other high-level government officials.

The visit provided an opportunity for the two countries to renew their commitment to peace on the continent and also enhance their bilateral ties for mutual benefits.

The Ghanaian official said that the two countries would work toward promoting peace, stability in Africa and creating conditions for reconstruction and economic and social development.

Ghana was one of the first countries to establish diplomatic relations with Angola after the latter gained independence in 1975.

The Ghanaian source said the Angolan president has called on his Ghanaian counterpart to reciprocate the visit at a date fitting both leaders.

Dos Santos left for Brazil on Tuesday evening for a two-day visit at the invitation of his Brazilian counterpart, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
