Cameroon reacts to the United States’ decision to eliminate Cameroon from AGOA.
The government of Cameroon has responded to the United States’ decision to eliminate Cameroon from the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA).
Cameroon Minister of Communication and spokesperson for the government Rene Emmanuel Sadi said the United States’ decision to eliminate and cut off Cameroon from the African Growth and Opportunity Act is not an objective decision.
In his statement this morning, he said the state is still considering measures to react to the decision of the U.S president.
He said, “there are things said there which may not correspond to the reality because we think Cameroon is one of the countries in Africa which has done a lot in terms of democracy and promoting liberties”.
“Have they seen all the atrocities committed by these separatists? Are they blind not to see what atrocities these guys are committing? Our forces are there to protect our citizens, preserve the integrity of the country and they are there because it is a duty for the state to be present and to secure the population and the state,” he added.
