Foreign Minister of Cameroon, said that persistent, hotbeds of tensions in Africa and the Middle East, and the emergence of new challenges such as migration and natural disasters, shake the very foundation of civilization. The question of migratory flows should remind everyone of the importance of effective solidarity and shared prosperity. The well-being of human beings depends on the international community’s ability to unite to fight poverty and promote democracy, he said. Migrants must be treated with dignity and respect. Poverty, unemployment, and falling purchasing power impinge on human dignity.
