Foreign Affairs Minister Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey says Ghana will not recognise any annexation of Ukrainian territories by the Russian Federation.

Addressing a particular assembly of the United Nations (UN) Security Council on the Maintenance of the peace and safety of Ukraine in New York City on Thursday, She noted that Ghana stays dedicated to its position that the Russian invasion of Ukraine is in breach of worldwide regulation and unjustified.

“We have expressed several times our principled position against the aggression on Ukraine which we consider to be a disregard for the rules of international law and the principles of the charter (UN Charter).

Ukraine as a sovereign state and a member of this organization (UN) has every right we believe and indeed, a responsibility to defend its territorial integrity and political independence” Foreign Minister Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey said.

“Ghana does not, and will not recognize any territory that is unilaterally and forcefully acquired as dismembered from a sovereign entity” Miss Botchwey added.

Seize hearth

In her statement, the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration reiterate Ghana’s call “on the Russian Federation, to immediately and unconditionally seize its operations, withdraw its troops from the internationally recognized borders of Ukraine” and to respect its western “neighbour’s sovereignty and political independence”.

“The need for a credible pathway for a genuine diplomatic process is urgent. The barrel of the gun does not provide such a pathway.
