Cameroon - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (29.01.19)

Q : What is France’s reaction to the situation in Cameroon, and specifically to yesterday’s arrest of opposition leader Maurice Kamto and the summoning of the ambassador to Yaoundé following incidents at the Embassy of Cameroon in Paris on Saturday?

A : We are closely monitoring Maurice Kamto’s situation following his arrest.

We strongly condemn last Saturday’s intrusion into the Embassy of Cameroon in Paris.

Our ambassador in Yaoundé met with Cameroon’s foreign minister yesterday, as he does on a regular basis. It was not a summons.
