President arrives after three-nation tour 6/11/2007
Accra, June 10, GNA - President Kufuor returned home on Sunday after a three-nation tour.
President Kufuor attended the 33rd Summit of the world''s most industrialised nations, the Group of Eight (G8) from 6th to 8th June. The President visited Geneva where he addressed 96th conference of the International Labour Organisation.

He also met with President Nicholas Sarkozy of France in Paris. Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and NEPAD, described the President''s trip as very successful.

He said the G8 Summit was not attended by only members of the G8 but also by other countries from Africa and Asia and that it was agreed that the mechanism for accountability would be put in place to ensure that all parties played their roles.

The Foreign Minister said the G8 leaders promised 60 million dollars for the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa.

He also said President Sarkozy expressed the view that Africa did not need to be seen strictly as being either Francophone or Anglophone. He said President Sarkozy said what he saw to be most important was how best France could forge good relations with Africa.

Vice President Alhaji Aliu Mahama, Ministers of State and the top brass of the security services met the President who was away for a week.
