After more than an hour of discussion, the following points were highlighted, as revealed to the press later on by the Special envoy of the Federal Public Service (FPS), Foreign Affairs of Belgium, H.E. JOZEF SMETS.
He said his visit fell within the framework of a series to some Cameroonian Institutions and officials, but the one to the Commission was a priority for two reasons:
First, because the Commission has a key role to play in the pacification of Cameroon.
Second, because Belgium and Cameroon have strong bilateral relations, and similarities.
