Fire of the Notre Dame Cathedral : Statement by the Embassy of France [ar] [fr]

The Embassy of France in Abu Dhabi shares the emotion and pain felt by our community following the disastrous fire that struck Notre Dame Cathedral, a symbol of our capital and world heritage.

We thank our friends from the United Arab Emirates and elsewhere for their numerous messages of support.

As announced by the President of the Republic, a national subscription to rebuild Notre Dame will be launched this Tuesday, April 16, 2019.

In these sad moments, let us make the eternal motto of Paris: Fluctuat Nec Mergitur [" Tossed by the waves but does not sink"] !
