Ghana's President John Dramani Mahama has arrived in Tehran on an official visit to hold talks with senior Iranian officials, Press TV reported.
Heading a high-ranking politico-economic delegation, Mahama arrived in Tehran on Saturday night at the invitation of his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani.
The Ghanaian president was welcomed at Tehran Mehrabad airport by Minister of Agriculture Mahmoud Hojjati who chairs the Iranian side of Iran-Ghana joint commission.
President Rouhani will officially welcome his Ghanaian counterpart on Sunday.
The visit is the first by a Ghanaian president to Iran in 37 years.
Mahama is set to hold talks with Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, his Iranian counterpart as well as Parliament (Majlis) Speaker Ali Larijani.
On Monday, he will also attend a trade and economic meeting of businessmen and enterprises from the two countries.
Speaking to IRIB earlier on Saturday, Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said Iran attaches great importance to enhanced relations with African countries.
He added that the two countries' officials will issue a joint statement and sign documents for cooperation in the sectors of agriculture, oil and energy, legal assistance, renewable energy and cocoa procession.
Mahama's trip comes in a series of visits by world leaders to Tehran after the implementation of a nuclear agreement, dubbed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was reached between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries in July 2015.
Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - the United States, France, Britain, China and Russia - plus Germany started to implement the JCPOA on January 16.
After the JCPOA went into effect, all nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran by the European Union, the Security Council and the US were lifted. Iran, in return, has put some limitations on its nuclear activities.
The nuclear agreement was signed on July 14, 2015 following two and a half years of intensive talks.
