Secessionists also affected too by the deadly coronavirus

Scheduled to be held from March 19 to 21, 2020 at Georges Washington University, the International Conference on the Armed Conflict in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon has been postponed to June 18-20, 2020 in the same context.

This press release was released on March 11 that released the information. Aware of the rapid and continuous spread of COVID 2019, the Coalition for Dialogue and Negotiation (CDN), discussed the possible risks of the interview from March 19 to 20 with local health officials in Washington DC and the George Washington University Event Management Team “By prioritizing the safety of all participants, the Coalition hereby announces its decision to postpone the conference from June 18 to 20, 2020 in the same location. During this time, the working groups will continue to meet and deliberate. We read between the lines of the note signed by Denis Foretia and Judith Nwana. 

The new Coronavirus has forced American Universities and many countries and other entities to opt for various prevention measures ranging from the transmission of distance courses to travel bans to the affected countries. In this, the CDN fears that these measures will have an impact on the number of participants expected to take part in the conference. A conference, let’s remember, which will mobilize populations from the North-West and South-West, political actors and those from civil society to try to find ways out of a major crisis of which more than 12,000 have been assessed. dead (civilians and soldiers), more than 300 villages razed, with more than 900,000 internally displaced persons and 60,000 externally displaced persons.

To date, the companies of the regime in place in this direction have failed miserably. Created to facilitate dialogue and negotiations to end the war in the countries of the world, the CDN is made up of professionals from all areas of life and from more than 20 partner organizations in the world advocating for the end of the war. A conference whose chances of success should not be overlooked.
