“On the occasion of your brilliant election as President of the Republic of France, I have the great pleasure of presenting to you, in my own name and that of the Cameroonian people, my sincere and warm congratulations”, writes Mr. Biya, on 8 May 2017.
He continues: “For many decades, France and Cameroon have had close and trustful relations in numerous areas.
Forged by history and a long friendship that has never been denied, they can accomplish new progress”. Biya’s message partly reads.
President Biya equally assured his young French colleague of his availability to work, with him, to maintain the friendship between the two countries and to open new horizons in their cooperation.
Emmanuel Macron won Sunday’s election with 66.1% against 33.9% for his opponent Marine Le Pen.
He is the eighth and youngest president France has ever had.
