JERUSALEM (Mar. 5)
Israel sent a top-level delegation to participate in the independence ceremonies of Ghana, the new West African state which will become a member of the British Commonwealth.
The delegation was headed by Pinchas Saphir, Minister of Trade and Industry, and includes David Hacohen, Israel’s former Minister to Burma. Israel has already set up a consulate in Ghana and hopes to develop extensive economic and cultural ties with the new nation.
