Au plan bilatéral et sous-régional

Au plan bilatéral la question de la circulation des armes légères fait partie des préoccupations majeures du Cameroun et de ses voisins dans le cadre de la session de commissions mixtes existant entre lui et les pays comme le Tchad, la RCA, la Guinée équatoriale, le Gabon et le Nigéria

Au niveau sous-régional, le Cameroun a réaffirmé sa volonté de lutter contre ce phénomène dans le cadre des activités des institutions sous-régionales ci-après:

- La CEEAC

- Le Comité consultatif permanent des Nations Unies sur les questions de sécurité en Afrique centrale et le COPAX;

- Le Comité des Chefs de police d'Afrique centrale qui ont adopté un accord de coopération entre les Chefs de police des pays d'Afrique centrale à Yaoudé en avril 1999.

Dans le cadre de ses activités, ce Comité envisage, à court terme, l'organisation des opérations conjointes de police en vue de lutter contre les activités criminelles transfrontalières.

At the Bilateral and Sub-Regional Level

At the bilateral level the issue of the circulation of small arms is one of the major concerns for Cameroon and its neighbours, in the context of the sessions of the mixed commissions that exist between Cameroon and other countries such as Chad, the Central African Republic, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon and Nigeria.

At the sub-regional level, Cameroon has reaffirmed its commitment to fight against this phenomenon in the activities of the following sub-regional institutions:

- ECCAS

- The United Nations Standing Advisory Committee on Security Questions in Central Africa and the COPAX;

- The Committee of the Chiefs of Police of Central Africa, which adopted a cooperation agreement between the Chiefs of Police of Central Africa in Yaoudé in April 1999.

As part of its activities, the Committee considers, on the short term, the organisation of joint police operations to fight against cross-border criminal activities.

[COPAX = Council for Peace and Security in Central Africa; ECCAS = Economic Community of Central African States]
