The European Union applauds the Cameroon government's efforts to calm the Anglophone crisis in the country

These acts are the introduction of the bill establishing the General Code of Decentralised Territorial Collectivities, the release of 333 detainees in the context of the crisis in the North West and South West, and about 200 activists of the Movement for the Rebirth of Cameroon.

European Union (EU) authorities met on 13 December 2019. The meeting took place within the framework of the political dialogue. In addition to regional, economic and cooperation issues, the two sides discussed political issues against the backdrop of the Anglophone crisis in the North West and South West. The work chaired by Lejeune Mbella Mbella, Minister for External Relations, and Hans-Peter Schadek , Ambassador, Head of the EU Delegation, enabled this partner institution in Cameroon to welcome the efforts undertaken to resolve the crisis in the two regions.

The European Union welcomes the introduction of the bill establishing the General Code of Decentralised Territorial Communities. This bill was presented to the deputies convened for an extraordinary session that opened last Friday. The text thus provides for the establishment of "a specific legal regime that, in addition to those recognised in other regions, gives the North West and South West regions the powers of their specificity. These relate to participation in the development of national public policies relating to the common law subsystem, the creation and management of regional development missions, and the status of traditional chiefdom.

The European Union also welcomed the foundations of the Great National Dialogue. These meetings took place from 30 September to 4 October 2019 in Yaoundè. It should be emphasised that out of this large national dialogue emerged the recommendation for a special status to be granted to the north-western and south-western regions.

The EU welcomed the release of 333 people detained in connection with the events surrounding the Anglophone crisis.
