“This comes in light of the growing pace of efforts of evacuating the Egyptian citizens in Sudan over time,” the ministry stated.


The Egyptian consulates in Sudan are continuing their efforts to evacuate the Egyptian citizens, the ministry said.


Since the clashes started between the Sudanese Armed Forces and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) last week, Egypt has been calling for consolidating a ceasefire in Sudan and ending hostilities.


Egypt has also worked to evacuate its citizens and nationals of other countries amid the current temporary ceasefire with casualties due to the clashes reaching more than 400 deaths and thousands of injuries.


Egypt, which has around 10,000 citizens including students in Sudan, has so far repatriated 1,539 citizens, according to figures released by the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Tuesday.
