Switzerland has offered its services to Cameroon to help seek solutions to the crisis in the North West and South West regions of the country.

The crisis was one of the major topics of discussion during an audience granted by the Head of State Paul Biya to the Swiss Ambassador to Cameroon Pietro Lazzeri on Thursday at the Unity Palace. "The diplomat submitted an offer that aims to help Cameroon find responses to the crisis," according to the Presidency of the Republic. Pietro Lazzeri says given his country's reputation for linguistic and cultural diversity and its international partiality, it is willing to offer Cameroon its expertise.

In this wake, the diplomat indicated that contacts previously initiated between the Swiss authorities and the officials of the National Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism in Cameroon will be strengthened, Business in Cameroon noted.

As a multicultural and pluri-linguistic country, Switzerland will continue to assist Cameroon through the National Commission for the Promotion of Bilingualism and Multiculturalism(NCPBM), Pietro Lazzeri said.

The Swiss diplomat told reporters after the audience that his country will provide assistance to persons affected by the crisis in the North West and South West regions of Cameroon. Pietro Lazzeri said this move is to accompany the Cameroonian government and other humanitarian organisations to help victims of the conflict, Journal du Cameroun.com reported.
