Argentine President Cristina Fernandez on Saturday offered her Chilean counterpart Michelle Bachelet "all the needed aid" for the 8.8- degrees earthquake that shook Chile on early Saturday morning.

Bachelet thanked Fernandez' solidarity and said that once the damages are verified her government will be able to determine what and how many aid her country will need to recover.

Meanwhile, Argentine ambassador in Santiago, Gines Gonzalez Garcia said that his country "will do all possible" to aid Chile.

The earthquake jolted south Chile at 3:34 a.m. local time. The official death toll is now 85, though president-elect Sebastian Pinera said more than 120 have been killed.
