A third plane of Royal Air Maroc coming from Sudan landed early Friday afternoon at Mohammed V International Airport, carrying 154 Moroccan nationals and a Senegalese student evacuated from Sudan, after the deterioration of the security situation in this country.
293 Moroccans had come from Sudan on Wednesday in two separate planes operated by RAM, each carrying 136 and 157 passengers.
According to His Majesty King Mohammed VI’s High Instructions, Moroccan nationals are being evacuated from Sudan to ensure that they are returned in the best possible circumstances.
His Majesty King Mohammed VI, may God glorify Him, has given His High Instructions to ensure the repatriation of Moroccan nationals from this country, according to a statement released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccan Expatriates on Monday. This was in response to “recent events in the Republic of Sudan and the deterioration of the security situation in this brotherly country.”
According to the High Royal Instructions, the Kingdom of Morocco’s embassy in Sudan organized a land caravan from the capital Khartoum to the city of Port-Sudan in a first phase, benefiting more than 200 Moroccan citizens who were living in Sudan or whose presence here coincided with this challenging domestic situation, said the ministry, adding that this land caravan arrived this Monday evening safely in the city of Port-Sudan.
