French Foreign and European Affairs Minister Catherine Colonna has pledged 5 million euros in aid to non-governmental organizations already active in the disaster zone in Morocco after a devastating earthquake there.
The aid is intended to help the victims of the earthquake that killed more than 2,100 people and injured more than 2,400.
The French government said on Monday it had pledged five million euros to aid organisations on site in Morocco after a devastating earthquake there.
The money will go to aid organisations already active in the disaster zone, Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna told the BFM broadcaster. Colonna brushed off questions about the absence of any official Moroccan request for aid from France. Morocco is “sovereign” and “alone entitled to determine what its needs are”, she said.
