Nice attack: Prime Minister Philemon Yang tells French ambassador “Cameroon stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the French nation” 0
Yaoundé has presented a condolence message to the French nation following the deadly attacks in Nice. To be sure, it was the sixth attack in France just within a year. At least 84 people were killed by a truck driven by a suicide bomber while they were celebrating the last hours of the national holiday at a place called “Promenade des Anglais”
Less than 24 hours after the tragedy, President Paul Biya sent a condolence message to Francois Hollande, his French counterpart in which he condemned in the strongest terms the “cowardly, barbaric and heinous acts that nothing can justify” wrote the Cameroonian chief executive.
Soon after the correspondence to President Hollande, Prime Minister Philemon Yang went to the residence of the French ambassador in Yaoundé on Friday afternoon where he was received by Christine Robichon, the Ambassador of France to Cameroon. Philemon Yang did sign a condolence book and assured the ambassador of the esteem and support of the Cameroonian people.
