German Ambassador to Libya Oliver Owcza on Monday praised evacuation of dozens of refugees from Libya to Rwanda.

“Congratulations to UNHCR Libya (the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) … to Rwanda for successfully establishing this new evacuation mechanism,” the ambassador tweeted.

The ambassador described the evacuation as a “strong signal of effective humanitarian action and international solidarity.”

UNHCR said last week that 66 refugees were evacuated from Libya to Rwanda.
