Government The false news of the closure of borders with Cameroon are denied Following the news in recent days regarding the closing of the border between Cameroon and Equatorial Guinea, the Equatorial Guinean Press and Information Office would like to make the following clarifications:

09/04/2012

1. Cameroon is a friend, neighbor and sister state to Equatorial Guinea, with which Equatorial Guinea maintains and will maintain excellent relations in all these areas, and in that of the numerous continental institutions by which we are also linked.

2. Following some altercations at the Kye-Ossi border between law enforcement and a group of people wishing to enter the country illegally, some special security measures have been taken at the land borders, measures that do not affect at all the excellent relations with Cameroon.

3. Local authorities in both countries have already met to address this issue, of course, through the dialogue, respect and good neighborliness that has always existed between the two States.
