South China Sea dispute: Cameroon calls for peaceful solution

The Cameroonian government has called for a peaceful solution to the territorial and maritime dispute in the South China Sea.

Cameroonian Deputy Foreign Minister Joseph Dion Ngute made the appeal while meeting with Sun Wei, Charge d'Affairs of the Chinese Embassy to Cameroon on Monday.

The Cameroonian government supports a peaceful solution to the dispute in the South China Sea, especially through consultations and negotiations in line with international law, said Ngute.

Cameroon's leading newspaper Mutation carried in a recent issue an article entitled "China Insists on Solving South China Sea Dispute Peacefully" under the by-line of Chinese Ambassador to Cameroon Wei Wenhua.

In the article, the Chinese ambassador explained the background of the South China Sea dispute and the arbitration case as well as why China does not accept South China Sea arbitration case.

In the end of the article, the ambassador said China is dedicated to maintaining peace and security in the South China Sea, protecting her own sovereignty and concerned rights in the area, insisting on solving the dispute peacefully through negotiations between the concerned parties based on respecting the facts of history and international law.
