Xinhua reported that Chilean President Sebastian Pinera has offered to donate copper and wood to help reconstruct France's iconic Notre Dame Cathedral. His office in a statement said "Pinera got in contact with the President of France Emmanuel Macron this afternoon to express his solidarity over the serious damage to heritage suffered by the people of France due to the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral.”

The statement added “Macron appreciated the gesture.”

The monument was severely damaged by a raging fire on Monday that destroyed the cathedral's spire and roof, which caved in after the blaze continued for several hours. Controlling the fire was difficult because of the building's delicate state and prized art collection, most of which was safely evacuated.
