Sat, Feb 1, 2014, 11:19 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 01, Colombo: Sri Lanka Foreign Employment Bureau (SLFEB) announced that sending the migrant workers to South Sudan will re-commence from tomorrow.

Sri Lanka suspended sending migrant workers to South Sudan due to escalation of the political crisis in that country and planned to evacuate around 75 Sri Lankan workers from the conflict affected country.

However, no threat to their safety was reported during the escalation of the crisis, an SLFEB official said.

The crisis has settled now as peace prevails between the government and the rebels of South Sudan.

SLFEB said that the Sri Lankan Embassy in Uganda is monitoring the Sri Lankan employees in South Sudan.
