(Newser) – Barack Obama will visit Ghana in July to hold bilateral talks with President John Atta Mills, Ghana Business News reports. The talks will focus on “strengthening the fraternal relationships” between the US and Ghana, according to a Ghana’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It will be Obama’s first trip to Africa, where he is widely popular thanks in part to his Kenyan ancestry.
