France offered help with Hurricane Sandy

A writer from Cheektowaga asked: Where is the help, when our country is in need, from countries to which we have sent aid in the past? On Oct. 30, as Hurricane Sandy churned around the East Coast, France’s minister of foreign affairs, Laurent Fabius, pledged France’s “full solidarity” with the American people. A communiqué from the minister’s office stated: “France stands at the disposition of American authorities to bring them any and all aid that they deem necessary.” I do not know if any of the affected U.S. states took Fabius up on his offer.
