France Approves €15 Million Aid Package for Armenia, Bringing Total Aid From France to Over €27.5 Mi

The French Parliament has given the green light to allocate a substantial sum of 15 million euros ($16 million) to Armenia and the displaced refugees from Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh). The decision, made on November 30, was confirmed in an official statement released by the French Foreign Ministry.


According to the statement, these funds are to provide comprehensive support through various organizations, including the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), the Armenian Red Cross, and the United Nations. The assistance aims to offer a wide range of aid, encompassing social, medical, educational, and financial support specifically directed towards vulnerable groups affected by the conflict.


This allocation adds to the ongoing aid initiatives, making the total aid granted to Armenia in the year 2023 an impressive sum of 27.5 million euros ($29.6 million). The aid shows France's commitment to extending crucial support and solidarity to Armenia and its affected communities.


The statement further highlighted France's immediate response in offering urgent medical assistance to Armenia. French hospitals extended their services to treat several individuals who had sustained severe burns, providing them with specialized medical care and attention.


This gesture of solidarity and financial aid signifies a significant step in fortifying the bond between France and Armenia. It reinforces the commitment of the international community in providing crucial support to regions affected by conflicts and crises.


The French government's decision to not only allocate substantial financial aid but also offer immediate medical assistance reflects a strong dedication to alleviating the suffering of those impacted by the Artsakh mass exodus.
