Cameroon Crisis: USA launches new challenge to Paul Biya

US Deputy Secretary of State for African Affairs Tibor Nagy said Monday that the recent release of detainees is not enough to solve the crisis in the northwest and southwest.

Tibor Nagy again addresses the issue of the Anglophone crisis after presenting last week his government's concerns about violence in the north-west and south-west of the country. He comments this time on the release on December 14 of 289 people arrested and detained in connection with the Anglophone crisis, following an order of President Paul Biya.

"The release of 289 detainees involved in the Anglophone crisis in Cameroon is a positive step, but not enough. We urge all parties to engage in an expanded dialogue without preconditions, "Tibor Nagy said Monday on his Twitter account.
