During a broadcast television programme, in which he took part, on the evening of Sunday, 3 February 2019, a Member of Government, and also a political leader, incidentally made comments on the main subject in which he made allusion to the dramatic period in the history of the Jewish community.
The Government of the Republic of Cameroon wishes to point out
that the political leader concerned was speaking on a strictly personal basis.
The Government of Cameroon strongly deplores the irrelevant comments of the said personality and completely dissociates itself. It wishes to recall that Cameroon and the State of Israel maintain excellent and historic relations, based on a strong and truthful friendship. 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.
