Delegates of the International Association of French-Speaking Parliamentarians (APF) Monday started a two-day visit in Burundi to eyewitness the east African country’s situation to lift sanctions weighing on that country, the speaker of the Burundian national assembly said.

The delegates led by the head of APF Jacques Chagnon, who is also president of the National Assembly of Quebec in Canada, visited Burundi to eyewitness the situation prevailing in Burundi, said Burundian National Assembly Speaker Pascal Nyabenda after meeting the delegates in Ngozi province, 125km north of the Burundian capital Bujumbura.

He was accompanied by some heads of chambers of Parliament in Africa.

The APF delegates were briefed about Burundi’s situation in a meeting they had with members of the bureaus of the two chambers of the east African parliament — the National Assembly and the Senate.

“We had requested the APF to send delegates to eyewitness the real situation in Burundi,” he said. Burundi hopes that they will consider our request as they realized that the situation of 2015 is far different from the situation of 2017, said Nyabenda.

He indicated that he demonstrated that the crisis that prevailed in Burundi in 2015 is over now. Enditem
