Cameroon and Nigeria forge ahead with resolution of border dispute

Said Djinnit, Special Representative of the Secretary-General

Cameroon and Nigeria are speeding up efforts to resolve a border dispute, which resulted in military confrontations between the two West African neighbours in the 1990s.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) resolved the issue with a ruling in 2002, after the two nations decided to resolve their dispute under international law.

A top United Nations official, Said Djinnit, is facilitating the implementation of the ruling as Chairman of the Cameroon-Nigeria Mixed Commission.

Representatives of the two nations came to New York this week for a meeting to resolve their border dispute.

Mr. Djinnit explained to Derrick Mbatha why the meeting was called in New York.
