Cameroon: UN Security Council to discuss Anglophone crisis

The escalating Anglophone crisis that has paralysed the North West and South West regions of Cameroon will come up at the United Nations Security Council on May 13 for the first time, reports say.

This follows calls from the European Union Parliament on April 26 for the UN Security Council to table the matter for discussions as the situation continues to worsen.

However, reports say discussions at the UN Security Council will be informal due to the reluctance of non permanent member South Africa, who rather wants the African Union to take charge and mediate in the crisis.

The United States has however set up an informal round of discussions geared at moving towards a resolution to the conflict that has claimed close to 2000 lives in the past 20 months, according to the International Crisis Group.
