France has made a donation of military equipment to the Cameroonian Armed Forces to help the army in fighting the Boko Haram extremists.
This is the second batch of material support France has given to Cameroon this year as part of the bilateral Franco-Cameroonian military cooperation.
According to a statement by the French Foreign Ministry, the donation included ten French tactical vehicles and five transport trucks, including an all-equipped sanitary unit.
The military equipment donation complements the training activities carried out throughout the year by the French military units in Gabon.
The military vehicles are equipped with weapons and transmission equipment and are accompanied with precision rifles, helmets and bullet-proof vests destined for the Cameroonian army special units.
They were officially handed over on Tuesday November 29th to the Minister Delegate at the Presidency in charge of Defence, Joseph Beti Assomo, by French Ambassador Gilles Thibault.
