Evacuation of about 150 Greeks in Sudan not currently possible, diplomatic sources say


Greek diplomatic sources have told Ekathimerini that the evacuation of the two injured Greek citizens and about 150 other Greeks trapped in the conflict zone in Sudan is currently not possible.

This comes as fighting between army units loyal to Gen Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the head of Sudan’s transitional governing Sovereign Council, and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF), led by General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, entered its fifth day on Wednesday.

According to AMNA.gr, the Greek Foreign Ministry, via the Crises Management Unit, is also in continuous communication with the International Federation of Red Cross (IFRC) to provide the best possible medical assistance to the two injured Greeks in Khartoum.

The IFRC is also informed of the presence and needs of the other Greek citizens in Khartoum, the capital of the North African country, besides the two injured individuals.

Meanwhile, the ministry continues to coordinate with other EU member states on medical aid and a possible rescue operation as soon as conditions allow.
