Chile – Adverse weather conditions (April 2, 2015)

France stands alongside Chile, which has been affected by severe flooding and landslides.

We extend our condolences to the victims’ families, and assure the Chilean authorities and people of our solidarity.

Within the framework of its partnership with Airbus Helicopters, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development crisis and support center is mobilizing helicopters to contribute to the relief efforts. The first airlifts will start today.

Our embassy is in continuous contact with the Chilean authorities in order to assess the situation and needs.
