A total of 293 Moroccans arrived Wednesday from Sudan on two Royal Air Maroc (RAM) flights after the deterioration of the security situation in the country.
The repatriated persons welcomed, on this occasion, the high royal instructions which allowed the return of Moroccans from Sudan in the best conditions.
These people expressed their joy at being able to return to Morocco, stating that they felt unparalleled happiness upon arrival on Moroccan soil, while welcoming the conditions of security and peace enjoyed by the Kingdom.
In this wake, these Moroccan citizens highly commended the efforts made by the services of the Moroccan Embassy in Sudan in coordination with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Living Abroad, which organized a land convoy, initially, from the capital Khartoum to the port city of Port Sudan, welcoming the warm welcome given to them by the embassy.
In addition, the Moroccans repatriated from Sudan also expressed their satisfaction with the quality of the services provided by RAM, which ensured the completion of the repatriation operation in accordance with royal instructions, emphasizing in this regard that the Moroccan devices were the first civilian planes to have landed at the international and military airport of Port-Sudan.
This crisis, they underlined, made it possible to highlight the spirit of solidarity which characterizes Moroccans, especially since the conditions did not allow them to move to meet their needs, underlining the paramount importance of security.
The efforts made by the competent services in accordance with the royal directives constitute a source of pride and great recognition, they underlined.
“In accordance with the High Royal Instructions, a first group of Moroccans established in Sudan has been repatriated, in coordination with the RAM, via an airlift to the Mohammed V international airport”, indicated, from his side, the secretary general in charge of MRE at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ismail Lamghari.
He also recalled that since the outbreak of the crisis in this brotherly country, a crisis unit has been set up at the level of the ministry in coordination with the Moroccan embassy in Khartoum, and with all the services concerned, adding that the airlift has made it possible, so far, to organize two flights while waiting to be able to repatriate all Moroccans from Sudan.
The two flights provided by RAM (136 on the first and 157 on the second) were welcomed by representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the governor of the province of Nouaceur and the director of the international airport Mohammed V, in addition to the security services who accompanied the repatriated persons to dedicated coaches to transport them to their places of residence.
