The Georgian Embassy in Turkey is in contact with the Georgian citizens in Sudan and their family members amid the fighting in the country between the army and a paramilitary group, the Georgian foreign office said on Monday.
“The Embassy of Georgia in Turkey has been informed [...] and is in contact with the Georgian citizens in Sudan as well as their family members. The Embassy is working in all directions”, the statement said.
The fighting in Sudan erupted on Saturday between army units loyal to General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the head of Sudan's transitional governing Sovereign Council, and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces, led by General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, who is the deputy head of the council.
At least 97 civilians have been killed and 365 injured since the fighting started in the country.
