The Government of the Republic of Cameroon wishes to point out

In any event, the Ambassador of the State of Israel in Cameroon was received this Monday, February 04, 2019, by the Minister of External Relations, who expressed to him the sincere regrets of the Government of Cameroon, while renewing the commitment of Cameroon to always work in maintaining the confident and mutually beneficial relations existing between the two countries.
