Speaking at a reception on Monday to commemorate Cameroon’s 52nd national day in the Saudi capital, Iya Tidjani stated that collaboration between his nation and the Kingdom has “continued to deepen over the decades.” The Cameroonian community attended the reception, embassy staff, Saudi officials and businessmen, and Prince Faisal bin Abdulaziz bin Ayyaf, the mayor of Riyadh.

Since the two nations’ relations were first established in 1966, they have developed and become more diverse, all to the benefit of both nations, according to Tidjani.
