Yaoundé (AFP) - President Paul Biya's call for dialogue on the separatist crisis in Cameroon's two anglophone regions was given a cautious welcome on Wednesday by some, although several separatist leaders swiftly and bluntly rejected it. The 86-year-old president, apparently softening his stance, said he would convene a 'major national dialogue' later this month. It will 'examine the ways and means to respond to the deeply-held aspirations of the populations in the Northwest and Southwest regions but also in all the other component parts of our great nation,' Biya said in a TV address late Tuesday.
