Egyptian Embassy facilitates return of Egyptians via Arqin crossing

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Saturday 13/4/2019 said the Egyptian Embassy in Khartoum managed to facilitate the passage of Egyptians through the Egypt-Sudan border crossing of Arqin.

The ministry said in a statement that the facilitation is part of efforts exerted by the embassy to provide care for the Egyptian community, particularly after Sudan closed land border crossings with Egypt.

The embassy made contact with a number of officials and director of the border crossing, who has already confirmed the opening of the crossing as of Saturday morning.

The embassy also contacted Egyptian students and citizens, who were stranded in the crossing to make sure that all obstacles were removed to facilitate their return to Egypt.
