(Business in Cameroon) - Guinean François Louncény Fall who heads the UN Regional Office for Central Africa hailed the Cameroonian government’s peacekeeping actions towards settling the ongoing Anglophone crisis. This was yesterday June 4 during an office briefing.
He also encouraged authorities to conduct a further inclusive dialog with separatists as to find a lasting solution to the crisis. According to Mr. Fall, this is the best way to preserve the country's stability, which is vital for the sub-region. In that regard, he welcomed the announcement from Prime Minister, Joseph Dion Ngute, on 9 May saying President Paul Biya was ready to engage in dialog on all issues, except those related to “separation” and “secession.”
This is a “step in the right direction,” said the UN representative. However, he pointed out, despite these positive achievements, the situation continues to deteriorate with frequent riots between secessionist armed groups and national defense and security forces.
