Talks are underway between Cameroon and Egypt for the review of an established aviation accord between them.
At the center of these negotiations are Cameroon’s Minister of Transport Edgard Alain Mebe Ngo’o and the outgoing Egyptian Ambassador to Cameroon Cherif El-Leithy, whose mission to Cameroon has come to end.
The Ambassador shared that he and Minister Mebe Ngo’o discussed the aviation pact between Egypt and Cameroon that was signed in 1966 and later amended in 1999. He also said his objective is to facilitate the launching of Egypt Air flights to fly the Yaounde-Cairo route.
El-Leithy will be leaving Cameroon after a four-year stint to serve in his country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs where he will work on relations with Central and West Africa. He said that he would follow up the dialogs when he returns to Cairo. Bilateral relations between Egypt and Cameroon go as far back as 1960.
