Boko Haram concentrate their attacks in northern Nigeria but are regularly reported to operate in neighbouring countries, including Cameroon where they have conducted numerous attacks and kidnappings. In August 2014 Boko Haram were reported to have attacked a number of locations in northern Cameroon, including the towns of Fotokol, Kerawa and Achigachia. Boko Haram present a regional threat and therefore require a regional response. The UK is committed to supporting the region tackle the threat from Boko Haram. On 12 June the UK hosted a ministerial meeting for the region and international partners in London which the Foreign Minister of Cameroon attended. The meeting agreed measures to strengthen regional co-operation against Boko Haram. On 3 September I visited Nigeria, where I met both President Jonathan and Foreign Minister Wali. In those meetings I expressed the UK's deep sympathy for the plight of the school girls and discussed further measures for securing their release. The UK will continue to work closely with Nigeria and the international community to tackle the threat posed by terrorist groups such as Boko Haram.
