According to Ghanaian media reports, Rouhani’s special envoy to the African country, who is also the director-general of Arab and African affairs office at the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Valiollah Mohammadi, delivered the invitation letter to Ghanaian Vice-President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur.

At the meeting between Mohammadi and Amissah-Arthur, the Ghanaian official underscored mutual cooperation and the expansion of bilateral ties.

He further highlighted the role of a permanent joint commission between the two countries in reinforcing Accra-Tehran relations, and said that long-term bilateral ties (between Iran and Ghana) have had fruitful results.

During the African official's stay in Tehran, he had a meeting with Iran’s Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, during which he noted Ghana has many needs in areas like oil, gas, electricity, which can be met by using Iran’s capacities.
