Denmark has said that it is sorry for its involvement in the slave trade in the onetime Gold Coast.

“We share a dark history of slave trade; it is sinful and an unforgivable part of any history. Nothing can justify it, the expectations of men, women and children, in which Denmark took part,” Denmark’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Anders Samuelsen said on Thursday, November 23 while interacting with Ghana’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey.
