They also agreed to exchange experiences, peacekeeping and interaction in peace support operations under the auspices of the United Nations.
A divisive deal
The terminology is too general for many observers to believe that it is necessary to look elsewhere than this document to understand the depth and implications of this agreement.
However, many welcome Yaoundé’s courage in initialing such an agreement at this time, at a time when Russia is involved. In a controversial military operation It is criticized all over the world. Others also see the shadow of the Wagner Nebula rising, this particular Russian militia whose actions are stirring controversy on the continent.
But for the most optimistic, Yaounde is right, especially as the country is tormented by numerous security crises in the north with Boko Haram in the English-speaking areas and in the east of the country. And they believe that Russia, whose military power has been proven, can help.
