It said the meeting would be hosted by the Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, and would have in attendance his Camerounian counterpart and military delegation.

It said the forum was a follow-up to previous international and regional meetings to foster common ground in the fight against insurgency and terrorism.

The statement added that it would fashion out ways to strengthen existing working relationship and cooperation between the two nations’ armed forces in the war.

“The bilateral talk is expected to advance the collaboration to contain the activities of terrorists in the two countries through coordinated military operations along the borders.
