French humanitarian aid officials met on Thursday to examine ways of providing support for victims of Hurricane Katrina (search) in the United States, a French Foreign Ministry spokesman said. France is considering ways of mobilizing relief teams from the French Antilles (search) in the Caribbean, ministry spokesman Denis Simonneau said at a news conference.
“France expresses its readiness to bring this aid based on the needs American authorities express,” he said. French authorities were following Katrina’s aftermath “with particular attention,” he added.
