He was meeting with the Prime Minister days after the British Minister of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Harriet Baldwin met with Cameroon’s Minister Delegate at the Ministry of External Relations in charge of the Commonwealth Felix Mbayu to discuss bilateral cooperations.
It was an opportunity for Harriet Baldwin to praise the efforts taken so far by the Government of Cameroon to solve the crisis in the North West and South West regions of Cameroon while urging for the process of dialogue to continue.
