font size    

British Prime Minister Tony Blair said on Friday that Britain was ready to help the United States " in any way that we can" after the American country was severely hit by Hurricane Katrina.

Blair said he spoke to US President George W. Bush on Thursday to offer his support.

"The whole of this country feels for the people of the Gulf Coast of America who have been afflicted by what is a terrible, terrible natural tragedy," Blair said in a speech in Watford, southeast England.

"We want to express our sympathy and our solidarity and give our prayers and thoughts to the people who were affected by what has happened out there on the Gulf Coast," said he.

"As I said to the President yesterday, this country will stand ready to help in any way that we can," Blair added.
