We acknowledge the views of the President of the African Bar Association regarding the Anglophone crisis in Cameroon, as set out in his letter to the Prime Minister. Officials at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office have responded to him. The British Government remains deeply concerned about the deteriorating situation in the North-West and South-West (Anglophone) regions of Cameroon, and we welcome the ongoing work of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in coordinating the humanitarian response to this crisis.
