US General calls on Chief of Defence Staff

Major-General Craig Rasmussen, Director of Logistics and Security at the United States European Command, Stuttgart, Germany, on Thursday held a closed-door meeting with Lieutenant General Seth Obeng, Chief of Defence Staff, in Accra.

Officers and men from the Air Force Base mounted a guard in honour of Major-General Rasmussen before the two men had discussions.
