Regional officials meet with Eguatoguinean counterparts to demarcate disputed border June 17; follow government directives

TIMEFRAME expected from 6/17/2020, 12:00 AM until 6/17/2020, 11:59 PM (Africa/Douala). COUNTRY/REGION Cameroon

Event

On Monday, June 9, regional officials held a crisis meeting with their Eguatoguinean counterparts to demarcate a disputed border in the country's southeast corner following recent skirmishes. Flare-ups in recent weeks have left soldiers from both sides injured with property damaged in the region surrounding Kye-Ossi (Sud region). At the meeting, the two sides tentatively agreed to return troops to their barracks until a lasting solution is found. Hundreds of farmers and traders have reportedly fled the region following the clashes, refusing to return until an agreement has been reached. Once local officials map out a proposed border, the central governments in Malabo and Yaounde will make the final determination on a new demarcation.

Advice

Individuals in the affected region are advised to monitor local media outlets and adhere to government directives.
