The ruler of Ghana's Ashanti kingdom, who is a graduate of Cambridge University and speaks fluent English, said the citizens of Ghana support Israel in the aftermath of the terror attack in Burgas, Bulgaria and urged Israelis to invest in the African country.


Peres said Israel would share with Ghana its knowledge in the fields of agriculture, water technology, education, medicine and infrastructure.
