Anglophone Crisis: European Union and the United States discredited Biya's National dialogue


 'The use of violence in these regions will not provide a solution'


This is another stabbing that just received the Great National Dialogue (GDN) since its end on October 4 last. Admittedly, the Council of the European Union has welcomed the appeasement measures taken by Paul Biya in the context of the Anglophone crisis and the post-electoral dispute of October 7, 2018. But the resolution No. 646/19 of October 14, 2019 Neither  "The EU reaffirms the need for all Cameroonian actors to respect the rule of law and to resolve this crisis peacefully, within the framework of an inclusive dialogue."

In other words, for her what happened from September 30 to October 4 was really not one.  For her, "the recent holding in Yaounde of a national dialogue offered a first opportunity to open prospects for a durable exit from the crisis".  So it was only a first step, not the final solution to the crisis. This is why it calls for "the continuation of this process to the expectations of the people, while reinforcing the inclusivity of all concerned actors both inside and outside the diaspora, including women, young people and civil society".

This is why "the EU is committed to the cause of all Cameroonian actors to respect the rule of law and to resolve this crisis peacefully, within the framework of an inclusive dialogue".

This means that the dialogue table, there must be at the same time the government, the secessionists (the real ones) and the diaspora hostile or not to the Yaounde regime.  A nod has been made to the opposition on the subject: "The EU calls for the entire Cameroonian opposition to be able to express itself freely, in accordance with the law, and to participate in the national dialogue process".  So that is the coloring that a real national dialogue should have, according to the European Union, which has understood, it is in its communiqué, that despite the GDN, the situation in the NoSo is more than ever borrowed violence.  What has the GDN solved?  "The use of violence in these regions will not provide a solution," says the statement of the Council of the EU.

 In the wake of the United States


This position of the Council of the European Union is similar to that of the United States, which expressed itself through its plenipotentiary in Cameroon.  It was through the communiqué of October 11th.  It also follows the savage murder of the aforementioned prison warden.  For Peter Henry Barlerin, "more violence is not the answer".

Moreover, "we call on all parties to the conflict in the north-west and south-west regions to renounce further violence and open dialogue without preconditions".  In other words, for Uncle Sam, there has never been a dialogue.  We are therefore waiting for the dialogue, the real one, which will put around the table the real actors of the crisis.

Of the two reactions, we note that the Council of the European Union and the United States are in the odor of sanctity.

Why are the European Union and the United States discrediting the great national dialogue, and are they right to do so when we know that we are waiting for the implementation of the recommendations, particularly on the Anglophone crisis?  What can be the international impact of such a rejection of the great national dialogue?  Obviously, the Gdn divides internationally, because it is worth remembering that this initiative has been hailed by the UN.  Can this be enough to play in favor of Gdn with Biya sauce?
