Pelosi speaks in Ghana about the history of slavery, America's commitment to African growth
US Parliament Speaker Nancy Pelosi discussed the relationship between the United States and Ghana during her visit to Africa this week.

"That friendship lasts for the sake of the people. We have been blessed in America with over 200,000 Ghanaians, who are a great force for our country ... it continues because of the security cooperation we maintain to keep the world safe. It continues because of our history, "said during a speech in the state capital of Accra.
Pelosi visited Ghana as chief of the forum's delegation to hold talks with President Nana Akufo-Addo on Monday before speaking to lawmakers on Wednesday.

He talked about the history of the slave trade, during which slaves were taken from Ghana and transported to America, but added that the U.S. is committed to the development of the country.

"America is deeply committed to Ghana's economic development ... Together, our governments must continue to support positive development strategies that promote sustainable economic growth and raise families throughout Ghana and Africa," he continued.
In Ghana, Pelosi and other members of the American Parliament are planning talks on "regional security, sustainable and inclusive development and tomorrow's challenges including the climate crisis."
