A group of 105 Libyan nationals arrived in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on a ship coming from Port Sudan, where national airline companies will fly them home as planned, Libya's Embassy in Khartoum announced on Monday.
According to Libya's Foreign Ministry, those evacuated to Jeddah included diplomatic staff and their families, students, and employees of Libyan institutions operating in Sudan.
"The Government of National Unity appreciates the role and efforts of the Saudi Kingdom - a member of the international Quartet concerned with Sudan - in supporting the evacuation operations and facilitating the return of the Libyan community to the homeland through its territory," the Foreign Ministry said.
Libya's FM Najla Al-Mangoush praised the efforts of the Libyan diplomatic mission in Sudan, which she said maintained communication and coordination with the Libyan community, thanking at the same time the team at her ministry for following up the evacuation process from the capital Khartoum.
The leader of the Rapid Support Force (RSF) Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo and Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, Sudan’s military ruler had been vying for power in negotiations over restoring civilian leadership in Sudan before talks broke down.
The fighting that broke out just over a week had claimed hundreds of lives and deprived millions of people from critical services.
