France awaits Rabat’s request for earthquake aid in Morocco

France stands ready to assist Morocco after a devastating earthquake claimed over 2,000 lives. President Emmanuel Macron, speaking at the G20 Summit in New Delhi, expressed France’s willingness to provide aid upon Morocco’s formal request.

“France is poised to extend its assistance to Morocco should it prove beneficial,” Macron stated during the conference. He emphasized that Moroccan authorities are well aware of the available resources, their nature, and the timing of deployment. Macron assured, “We are at their disposal. We have done everything in our power. The moment they request aid, we will act.”

Following the earthquake, France, among other nations, offered assistance on Saturday. The earthquake struck late Friday evening, impacting villages in the High Atlas mountains and causing damage in Marrakech.

Anne-Claire Legendre, a spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry, affirmed that the French embassy in Morocco is fully engaged and monitoring the situation closely. She explained, “Today, Moroccan authorities are leading the response, and an assessment is underway. Thus far, Morocco has not officially requested assistance.”
