Cameroon: UN reacts to national dialogue announced by Paul Biya
In a statement issued on Tuesday, September 17th, 2019, the United Nations, encourages Cameroonian President Paul Biya, for the national dialogue he has announced to resolve the crisis that has shaken the country for the past 3 years.
The national dialogue announced by President Paul Biya on Tuesday, September 10th, continues generating reactions from Cameroonian political actors and even international organizations. After the reaction of the European Union, which wants the separatists to be part of this dialogue, it is the world’s highest organisation that comes to react. According to the statement issued on Tuesday, the UN “encourages the Cameroonian government to ensure that the process is inclusive and responds to the challenges facing the country“.
Last week, France asked president Paul Biya to include separatist leaders in prison and in exile in the national dialogue.
Cameroon has been facing an English-speaking crisis for the past 3 years. According to some human rights organisations, there are already more than 2000 deaths.
