No: 110, 22 April 2023, Press Release Regarding the Assistance to Repatriation of Our Citizens and Nationals of Third Countries

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 22.04.2023

Since the eruption of the clashes between Sudanese Army and the Rapid Support Forces on 15 April 2023, our main priority has been to ensure the safety of our citizens and Embassy personnel as well as to respond to the requests for help.

Our President and our Minister raised the matter of safe repatriation of our citizens residing in Sudan in their respective contacts with their Sudanese counterparts and third countries. The necessary preparations were carried out in coordination with our Embassy in Khartoum and our Ministry.

Following our security assessment, we have decided to repatriate our citizens, on 23 April especially from conflict areas by land to Türkiye through a third country. Moreover, third country nationals who have asked for assistance have also been included in our planning.

Our citizens who have asked for repatriation are being informed through the social media accounts of our Embassy and Ministry as well as the contact information of our citizens who have registered until today.
