Cameroon peace talks ‘messy’ but important to continue, Joly says.

Cameroon's army is searching for 79 children kidnapped from a school in western Cameroon on Monday, and has said Anglophone separatists are likely to blame – Nov 6, 2018

Foreign Minister Melanie Joly offered no explanation today for why Cameroon claims it never sought Canada’s help in peace talks.

Ottawa announced last Friday that it has been leading discussions between the government of Cameroon and separatist groups, whose decades-long conflict has violently escalated in recent years.

But the Cameroon government said on Monday that it had never sought any external mediator.

Joly told reporters today that peace talks tend to be “messy” but that Ottawa is committed to helping the country reach a peace deal.

Her office says three meetings have already taken place that included officials from the government of the west-central African country and the United Nations.

Cameroon’s high commission in Ottawa has not responded to an interview request.
