Complete French right Evacuation Vehicle

PARIS - France sends planes and ships high-power capacity to create bridges land and sea at 5,000 Egyptians who fled from Libya in the Tunisian border, the foreign ministry said on Wednesday (03/02/2011).

In clashes between troops and rebels Moammar Qaddafi, foreign ministry spokesman Bernard Valero said France, Paris is also seeking ways to deliver tents and supplies emergency equipment to people who have not left vulnerable to Libya.

However, the initial focus of France located on the situation in the border region of Libya with Tunisia, where tens of thousands of refugees trying to escape from conflict and humanitarian crisis would provoke. Valero said the priority was to help Egyptian workers to reach his residence. "With the passage of high capacity power plane on one side, plus a transport ship on the other hand, we expect to move at least 5,000 people a week," he said.

"France decided on March 1, to assist, through air and sea, Egypt's efforts to evacuate workers who want to flee from the Tunisia-Libya border," said Valero told reporters.

"This step, through coordination with the European Union, is in response to an international appeal launched by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and by the Government of Egypt," he said.

"This is a way to help Tunisia who face a wave of refugee influx," he explained.

More than 170,000 people out of Libya since the uprising occurred about two weeks ago, of whom 75,000 people led to Tunisia, 63,000 to Egypt, and 800 to Niger, Valero said, quoting from the UN estimates.

He said the High Commission also warned that the situation in Libya-Tunisia border will become critical.
