According to the statement, there are now over 1,500 Pakistanis living in Sudan. It also added that the Pakistani embassy was in touch with them and giving them all the assistance it could.
The prime minister stated that Pakistan was having trouble evacuating its nationals because of the risk involved in travelling to the airport.
He gave the assurance that the administration was in contact with the UN regarding the circumstance in Sudan.
Also on Friday, Pakistani missions in Khartoum and the neighboring nations participated in a virtual conference with the foreign secretary, Asad Majeed Khan, to discuss the situation in Sudan.
“The government is working with partner countries to ensure the safety and security of Pakistanis in Sudan, including the option of evacuation,” the spokeswoman for the Foreign Office tweeted.
Mr. Majeed also met with Salih Mohamed Ahmed Mohamed Siddig, the Sudanese ambassador to Pakistan, to express Islamabad’s worry over the deteriorating situation in the latter’s nation.
During the discussion, the foreign secretary expressed the hope that the Sudanese authorities would do all possible to safeguard the safety and security of Pakistanis living there.
