Ethiopia has repatriated 980 stranded nationals in recent days from the Middle Eastern countries of Saudi Arabia and Oman, an Ethiopian official said on Wednesday.
Dina Mufti, Spokesperson of Ethiopia Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA), said the Ethiopian government is currently redoubling efforts to repatriated Ethiopian nationals stranded in various foreign countries.
The efforts are part of the government’s newly unveiled “citizen focused diplomacy.”
The Ethiopian government is also working to dismantle sophisticated human trafficking networks, as well as create economic opportunities for nationals with low incomes. Enditem
