China has donated 50 million Yuan (US$7.3million) to the African state of Cameroon for obtaining military equipment of its choice.
A protocol to confirm the donation was signed in Yaounde, Wednesday July 18, 2018, by the Minister Delegate at the Presidency in charge of Defence, Joseph Beti Assomo and the Chinese Ambassador to Cameroon, Wang Yingwu, Cameroon Tribune reported on July 19.
The type and quantity of military equipment to be supplied Cameroon by China will be determined by Cameroonian officials based on their needs. The execution of the accord is expected to last five years.

“I hope the aid will help Cameroon to ameliorate the capacity of its defense forces in preserving peace and ensuring security in the country and the sub-region,” Wang Yingwu told reporters.
Defence Minister Joseph Beti Assomo noted that it is the fifth time China is supporting the Army and the National Gendarmerie with military equipment.
