(Business in Cameroon) - Joseph Yakete, Central African Minister of Defence, started an official visit to Cameroon last 17 April. According the Communications Division of the Cameroonian Ministry of Defence, this visit is part of the strengthening of security cooperation between the two countries, cooperation that should soon result in training of certain Central African Defence Forces by the Cameroonian army.

Also, during the day of 17 April, the Central African Minister of Defence visited in turn the All-Army Military School (Ecole Militaire Interarmées - EMIA), prestigious school from which the majority of officers of the Cameroonian army emerge ; the Command of schools and Training Centres of the national gendarmerie, which manage the schools specialised in training and retraining members of the national gendarmerie.

Through this boost that the Cameroonian army is considering giving to its Central African colleague, Cameroon, which shares borders with CAR and already participates since the beginning in the United Nations stabilisation mission in Central Africa, hopes thus to bring a determining contribution to the peacekeeping of this country suffering from insecurity since the overthrow of President Bozizé in 2013.
