The last batch of Chinese nationals evacuated from riot-torn Libya was expected to return to China soon, according to the Chinese Foreign Ministry.
The Chinese government these days has continued sending military and chartered planes to bring back those evacuees temporarily staying at other nations, the ministry said in a press release.
The statement came after another two chartered airplanes, with 778 Chinese nationals on board, landed at the Beijing Capital International Airport on Saturday morning.
A 19-member working group, comprising government officials from different departments, was also brought back by the two airplanes, one from Air China and the other from Hellenic Imperial Airways of Greece.
Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Song Tao met the working group at the airport and especially expressed gratitude to the foreign aircrew.
"We really appreciate the convenience and support offered by Greece and other nations in our evacuation operation," Song said.
The working group, leaving for Libya on Feb. 23, successfully helped over 30,000 Chinese nationals to evacuate from the country.
Song spoke highly of the group's efforts, saying that their act showed the world the Chinese government civil servants' resolution and capability to protect the safety and interests of Chinese nationals.
All Chinese in Libya who wanted to return to China and whose whereabouts were known by the Chinese Foreign Ministry, have been evacuated to third countries, and most have been further flown back to China.
A total of 35,860 Chinese citizens have been evacuated from Libya, and the majority of them have returned to China.
