PARIS (AP) — French and African leaders and international organizations are holding a conference in Paris to negotiate debt relief and raise global support for Sudan’s transitional leadership. France’s President Emmanuel Macron is hosting the event in the presence Gen. Abdel-Fattah Burhan, head of Sudan’s ruling sovereign council and Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok, in charge of making changes. A popular uprising in Sudan led to the military’s overthrow of longtime autocrat Omar al-Bashir in 2019. Burhan praised a “historic opportunity” for Sudan and shared a “message of peace and of cooperation” after 30 years of international isolation.
