US appreciates Saudi for facilitating safe emigration of American citizens from Sudan
General Michael “Erik” Kurilla, the head of US Central Command, praised Saudi Arabia on Monday for helping to evacuate US people from Sudan.
Kurilla informed Lieutenant-General Fayyadh bin Hamed Al-Ruwaili, the Royal Saudi Chief of General Staff, that the Kingdom has supplied resources, access, bases for bases, and overflights to evacuate hundreds of American nationals.
These Americans were able to go from Sudan to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, for safety thanks to this support, according to Kurilla.
The swift cooperation between the two nations, he continued, was “made possible by the strong US-Saudi partnership, which spans more than seven decades.”
“We will continue to build on that partnership into the future,” he declared.
On Monday, Saudi Arabia evacuated more than 200 people from Sudan, including Americans, aboard the HMS Abha.
