She urges Cameroon to respect and observe the international protection principles. While restating the commitment of the National Commission for Refugees, Migrants and Internally displaced Persons to the protection of its persons of concern,the Federal Commissioner, also expresses readiness to facilitate their return in safety and dignity.
