Cameroon - International cooperation
Cameroon was admitted to UN membership on 20 September 1960 and is a member of ECA and all the nonregional specialized agencies. Cameroon is also a member of the African Development Bank, G-77, African Union, and UDEAC and is a signatory to the Law of the Sea and a member of the WTO. Cameroon was formally admitted to the Commonwealth in 1995.
In August 1986, diplomatic relations with Israel were renewed after a 13-year gap, and the visit to Cameroon by Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres was the first by an Israeli leader to a black African nation in 20 years.
