Ghanaian Army Chief, Major General Joseph Narh Adinkrah, on Monday began a four-day visit to India aimed at strengthening defence cooperation between the two countries.
Adinkrah will be meeting ministry of defence (MOD) and senior military officials, besides visiting United Service Institution (USI) and the Centre for United Nations Peacekeeping (CUNPK) in the capital.
"During his interaction with senior MOD and military officials, Adinkrah will discuss issues to enhance military cooperation. The visit will further enhance our defence cooperation and cement the time-tested ties between India and Ghana, which are based on continuity, trust and mutual understanding," a statement from the defence ministry said.
India has historical military relations with the west African nation.
"The defence cooperation with Ghana has existed since 1957 and the Indian armed forces have played an important role in laying the foundation of all the three services of the Ghana armed forces.
"The Armed forces of the two nations have been comprehensively cooperating in the field of military training, United Nations Peacekeeping Operations, training and participation of observers in exercises," the statement said.
