The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has reiterated its keenness to address the situation of more than 400 Sudanese stranded so far in India, to which they went for medical treatment before the new coronavirus pandemic that struck India, while the authorities in India have prevented travel in and out of the country.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stressed that the issue of the Sudanese citizens stranded in India is a top priority for the work of the higher committee to combat the coronavirus pandemic, in which the Ministry actively participates.
A source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs revealed to SUNA that it was agreed at the meeting of the higher committee on Friday in the Friendship Hall that all arrangements shall be taken to facilitate the return of the stranded citizens in the first week of July.
The source stated that the committee is now studying a number of options, including the option of seeking help from sister countries to provide some logistical arrangements and complete some internal arrangements in coordination with the concerned authorities to provide the necessary funding for the return of the stranded citizens.
He said that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is following up with Sudan Embassy in Delhi the issue of the stranded citizens, coordinating with them and following up their return to Sudan.
