Posted by African Press International on March 31, 2007

Yaoundé (Cameroon) Equatorial Guinea head of state Obiang Nguema Mbasogo Friday afternoon concluded a one-day friendship and working visit to the Cameroonian capital, Yaoundé, APA noted.

Speaking to the media at the end of his stay that was marked by discussions with his counterpart Paul Biya, Mr. Obiang Nguema pointed out that their discussions related to the reforms of the Economic and Monetary Union of Central Africa (CEMAC) of which he is leading a steering commission.

The Equatorial Guinea president said that discussions with his counterpart also revolved around border and consular issues between the two countries to be normalised.

President Paul Biya, on his part said that his guest had come to get the opinion of Cameroon on the CEMAC reform process.

Answering to a question about the recurrent frictions between his country and neighbouring Equatorial Guinea that recently resulted in some massive repatriations of Cameroonians, Paul Biya did not expand over the issue, preferring to say that these were “small border and consular issues”, while expressing his hope however that “on both sides, people abide by the laws”.
