dpa/GNA – US President Joe Biden plans to join an online video summit of EU heads of state and government scheduled for later this week, the White House confirmed in Washington on Tuesday.

Biden, who was invited to the Thursday summit by EU Council President Charles Michel, is set to discuss his plans to revive trans-Atlantic ties, to cooperate with Europe in the fight against the pandemic and climate change, and to strengthen joint trade relationships.

Common foreign policy issues, such as concerns China and Russia, will also be on the table for discussion.

Michel wrote on Twitter: “I have invited the President of the US to join our meeting for him to share his views on our future cooperation. Time to rebuild our transatlantic alliance.”

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
