President Paul BIYA granted two audiences at the Unity Palace on 5 June 2020 to His Excellency Christophe Guilhou – the Ambassador of the Republic of France to Cameroon, and H.E. Bok-Ryeol Rhyou – the outgoing Ambassador of the Republic of South Korea.

The enhancement of bilateral ties between Yaounde and Paris was at the core of discussions between the Head of State and Ambassador Christophe Guilhou.

In a briefing with reporters at the end of his meeting, the French Diplomat said he had an extensive conversation with President Paul BIYA on a Franco-Cameroon strategy to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic – COVID-19.

The evolution of the socio-political situation in the North-West and South-West Regions, and the respect of human rights in Cameroon were equally reviewed by both personalities.

This was followed by a farewell audience with H.E. Bok-Ryeol Rhyou. The South Korean Diplomat presented her Letters of Credence on 5 July 2018. Cooperation ties in the health and education sectors were greatly reinforced during her stay in Cameroon.
