France Calls For Dialogue To Resolve Southern Cameroons Conflict

The French Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs Jean-Yves Le Drian, who will be the US on Monday Dec. 18, 2017, yesterday Friday Dec. 15, made some startling statements regarding conflicts in different parts of the world, as well as the role of Paris in resolving these conflicts.

His statements were about the situations in the East of Ukraine, Easter Ghouta in Syria, Yemen, Iran, English speaking regions of Cameroon and Myanmar/Burma.

Talking about the  situation in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon that continues to deteriorate, and  the role Paris play in order to try and ease the situation, Le Drian said:
"France is closely monitoring the situation in Cameroon, which is a friend and partner.
We expressed our concern following the incidents that took place in October in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon, which resulted in several deaths. We also condemned the crimes recently perpetrated against law enforcement officials.
We urge all actors to exercise restraint and to reject violence. We encourage efforts to resolve the tensions through dialogue in order to respond, in a peaceful and concerted manner, to the concerns of all parties while respecting the country’s unity and integrity. This is also the message we want to convey to the Cameroonian authorities."
These declarations comes after French President Emmanuel Macron invited President Biya to the just ended 'One Planet Summit' in Paris, where it is said both men had a tête-à-tête, regarding the ongoing crisis in the English speaking regions of Cameroon.
