The minister said that in respect for the autonomy of Cameroon and in accordance with the existing procedures and rules, the Americans have willingly submitted to the routine check and cooperated perfectly to ensure that the operation is done in the best terms of serenity and transparency.
There were no weapons found in the mentioned vehicles and that the cargo only consists of toilet stalls, sleeping gear, tin cans, food ration kits, accessories, electric cables and air conditioning units and other materials.
