Czech offers assistance to US
font size    

The Czech Republic is offering the United States part of a field hospital, an army chemical unit, medical staff and military and civilian aircraft to help deal with the aftermath of the recent hurricane Katrina, Czech Prime Minister Jiri Paroubek announced Monday.

The announcement followed a meeting between the Paroubek and US ambassador William Cabaniss.

Cabaniss said the offer will be considered immediately and a decision be made by the end of the week.

The United States has asked for help from the European Union and North Atlantic Treaty Organization in the wake of hurricane Katrina. The Czech government has already pledged 25 million crowns (about 1.07 million US dollars) in financial assistance on Sunday.

"Money is only second in line, now is the time for concrete help from our teams," said Paroubek.

The newly appointed deputy foreign minister Jaroslav Basta was given the task of coordinating the assistance.
