The UK is monitoring the situation in the Anglophone regions of Cameroon closely. Our High Commission in Yaoundé continues to meet opposition groups, human rights defenders and the Cameroonian authorities to establish an accurate account, including over allegations of rape. Our High Commissioner in Yaoundé raised our concerns about the situation in the Anglophone regions with President Biya on 19 December. In this and several recent meetings with Prime Minister Philémon Yang and Cameroonian Ministers he called on the Cameroonian Government to adhere to Cameroon’s obligations under international law in respect of human rights. The British Government condemns sexual violence in conflict and is working with foreign governments, the United Nations, the African Union and international organisations to end it.
