The Government of El Salvador has expressed solidarity with the people of Guatemala, who are now facing grave difficulties in the aftermath of the eruption of Volcano Fuego.
The Volcanic explosion is, so far, responsible for catastrophic harm to the people and infrastructure of Guatemala. There have been at least 25 confirmed casualties and hundreds of others injured.
The Latin American country extended condolences to their Central American neighbors in the wake of the devastating loss of lives and extensive damages caused by the environmental disaster.
El Salvador is also set to provide humanitarian assistance to the Guatemalan people who have been injured as a result of Fuego's eruption.
El Salvador's Civil Protection personnel, including the USAR Search and Rescue Group, have been put are on alert, the government release said.
Additionally, authorities of the Autonomous Port Executive Commission (CEPA) will make the necessary arrangements for flights previously scheduled to arrive in Guatemala City to touch down at the International Airport Monseñor Óscar Arnulfo Romer.
The Salvadoran Government added that it hopes for resilience in the people of Guatemala in their time of despair and through the process of recuperation and restoration of its nation.
