ISLAMABAD: The foreign office (FO) reported that 427 Pakistanis had arrived safely in Sudan port amid hostilities across the country.
According to a foreign ministry official, the foreign ministry is working with international missions to provide assistance to Pakistanis trapped in Sudan.
The representative further claimed that plans are being made for the next travel of Pakistani people who are now docked in Sudan.
Earlier, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif stated that the government’s primary concern was the security and protection of Pakistanis in Sudan.
In a statement, he said the government was closely monitoring the situation in Sudan and the efforts taken to protect and secure Pakistani citizens.
The Pakistani embassy in Sudan was in close contact with the 1500 Pakistanis living in Sudan and was providing them with all necessary services. The Sudanese embassy set up a WhatsApp group to keep in touch with Pakistanis who were told to stay at home.
It is worth noting that violence between the RSF and Sudan’s army erupted, derailing an internationally approved plan for a civilian democracy transition four years after Islamist tyrant Omar al-Bashir fell to enormous protests and two years after a military coup.
