The President of the Republic of Congo, Denis Sassou Nguesso, has sent a message of friendship, cooperation and solidarity to his Cameroonian counterpart, President Paul Biya, through his Diplomatic Adviser and Special Envoy, Martin Adouki. After handing over the message to Prime Minister, Head of Government Philemon Yang during an audience yesterday, August 12, 2015 at the Star Building, the Special Envoy told the press that relations between both countries were excellent. “Both Heads of State are two key actors in the region. They have an extremely important bilateral agenda,” he disclosed.
In the Congolese city of Ouesso which will soon host celebrations to mark the 55thanniversary of the independence of the Republic of Congo, several joint projects are imminent or underway. According to Martin Adouki, key examples include a Congo-Cameroon Inter-State University, the construction of an inter-State road as well as joint projects in mining and the construction of hydroelectric dams.
While acknowledging that President Sassou Nguesso and his Equato-Guinean counterpart, Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, were mandated by their peers of the Economic Community of Central African States, ECCAS, to negotiate a joint meeting with their West African counterparts for a common platform to combat the Boko Haram insurgency, he declined giving further details as to the state of evolution of that mission. The Congolese Head of State’s Special Envoy was accompanied to the Star Building by the Ambassador of the Republic of Congo to Cameroon, H.E. Gisèle Bouanga-Kalou.
