ACCRA, Nov. 23 (Xinhua) -- Visiting Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie and his Ghanaian counterpart Lt. Gen. Joseph Henry Smith expressed the willingness to strengthen friendly military cooperation between the two countries during their talks here Wednesday.

Defense departments and military leaders of China and Ghana have been attaching great importance to developing a relationship between the armed forces of the two countries, Liang said.

Mutual political trust and economic and trade cooperation have been deepened in recent years between the two countries, which have supported each other on international affairs, he added.

The Chinese defense minister said China would like to make more efforts together with Ghana to continue the existing friendly relations and promote cooperation on all levels and in all sectors for the benefit of the two peoples.

Liang also appreciated Ghana's positive role in maintaining international and regional peace and security.

For his part, Smith said Ghana values its traditional friendly ties with China, which were forged by leaders of past generations and further developed by the successive leaders of the two countries.

Smith appreciated China's selfless assistance to Ghana, saying his country would make more efforts together with China to take the existing relations to a higher level.

Liang and his delegation arrived in Accra Tuesday for a three-day goodwill visit to the West African country.
