TOKYO : Japan has thanked Saudi Arabia and the UAE for helping to evacuate 45 people —both citizens and foreigners — from Sudan on Monday, Japan’s foreign ministry said.
The evacuees included women and children who were flown out on an Air Self-Defense Force C-2 transport aircraft to Djibouti from Port Sudan, which is in the east of the country.
The mission was carried out in close cooperation with Japan’s Ministry of Defense, the Self-Defense Forces and other ministries and agencies.
Separately, with the cooperation of France and the International Red Cross, four Japanese nationals were evacuated from Sudan to Djibouti and Ethiopia.
The evacuation by Japan was carried out in coordination with the International Red Cross, the UN, South Korea, France, Germany, the US and the UK.
The Japanese government called on all parties to stop the violence immediately, adding that it has made every possible effort to protect Japanese residents in cooperation with other countries and international organizations. (Arab News )
