Authorities Outline Plan to Evacuate Thais in Sudan
BANGKOK (NNT) - The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced plans to evacuate Thai citizens from Sudan. They will be using air, land and sea routes to ensure the safe return of Thai nationals from the African nation. Thai students have been gathering in a safe area organized by Thai officials in Khartoum to await evacuation.
Three options for evacuating from Khartoum have been outlined, specifically air travel via Khartoum Airport; land travel through South Sudan or Ethiopia and Egypt; and sea travel from Khartoum to Port Sudan and onward to Jeddah Airport in Saudi Arabia.
