“I congratulated him on the success of Cameroonian armed forces in this fight. I also expressed my sincere and deep condolences on the death of General Jacob Kodji and his comrades in the tragic helicopter accident late last month,” he said.

Strategically, it is imperative for Cameroon and the U.S. to examine the possibility of realising a broader bilateral relationship and partnership. This is within the context of the inauguration of President Donald Trump and the confirmation of Rex Tillerson as the new U.S. Secretary of State.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Ambassador emphasized on the shared opinion he held with President Paul BIYA. He said they concurred that: “democracy; rule of law; respect for human rights; inclusive and legitimate consultations across all segments and sectors of the society, are important to secure a bright future for all Cameroonians”.

“I congratulated the President on his continuing efforts to build a transparent and corruption-free business climate that attracts the investment Cameroon needs to create jobs and employ its vibrant youth.”

“The young people are truly the future of this great Nation and it is important to include them in discussions and consultations about the future of the country,” he explained.

Ambassador Hoza referred to the social tensions in the North West and South West regions as a “domestic debate”. He also reiterated the importance of non-violence and dialogue with all sectors of society for the benefit of all Cameroonians. PRC.CM
