Foreign Affairs Ministry urges caution for citizens in Sudan, offers emergency contacts
The Cypriot Foreign Affairs Ministry confirmed on Tuesday that a 10-member Cypriot family is safe in their home in Khartoum. A Ministry spokesperson stated that the family is known to have grown up in Khartoum and is therefore capable of protecting themselves.
The spokesperson added that efforts are being made to locate other families and stressed that a ceasefire must be implemented so that each country can determine the needs of their nationals.
The Ministry advises Cypriot citizens to avoid non-essential travel to Sudan and follow developments closely. Cypriot citizens in Sudan are also advised to apply maximum security measures and register online if they wish to do so.
