Minister Gargoum in his toast at the diner highlighted several achievements recorded by Mohammed Suliman Almussher during his diplomatic stay in Cameroon, noting that the out-going Ambassador leaves behind lasting diplomatic memories to be cherished.
The Saudi Arabian diplomat who spoke through an interpreter after receiving his medal said he was honoured and at the same time humbled with such a distinction. Going by him, it attests to the strong diplomatic and friendly ties existing between Cameroon and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The out-going Ambassador said the hospitality and generosity of Cameroonians remain dear to him.
