We have rejoiced with Ghana in its newly acquired independence, we have
paid tribute to the wisdom and statesmanship which have characterized Ghana's
transition to full membership in the family of nations we have noted with
deep satisfaction that the feelings of friendship and mutual advantage which
have accompanied this transition will be continued through Ghana's participation
as free and equal member of the great British Commonwealth of Nations. Ends.
Begins. As I leave Ghana I salute it for its wisdom moderation and
vision for the future. I also salute the farsightedness and sense of mission
which have motivated the Government of the United Kingdom in the course
of action which it has followed. I am confident that these same considerations
will continue to characterize the relationship between the two countries
and that the entire free world, as well as Ghana and the British Commonwealth,
will be the gainers. I know I speak for the President and the Government
of the United States and for the American peoples in saying that we wish
Ghana success in the course which she has charted.
