New Delhi: France today condoled the loss of
lives in the cloudburst in Leh in Jammu and Kashmir and
offered help if India wishes so.

"It is with great grief that I have come to learn of the
terrible toll taken by the flash floods in Ladakh: the latest
estimates cite 150 dead and 400 missing," French Foreign
Minister Bernard Kouchner said in a statement.

"In these painful circumstances, I would like to express
France`s solidarity with the Indian people and authorities and
would convey my condolences to the families and near and dear
ones of the victims," he said in a statement released by the
French Embassy here.

Kouchner said it is in this spirit of solidarity and in a
European framework that France will consider any request for
aid that the Indian Government may wish to make.
