Dear President and Colleagues of the Mexican Republic,
The International Union of Architects has followed closely and with great concern the series of earthquakes that have occurred in your beloved country, causing extensive loss of human life and substantial property damage.
The International Union of Architects echoes the message of solidarity offered by the president of the Federation of Colleges of Architects of the Mexican Republic (FCARM), architect José Luis Cortés, and we join in extending our deepest condolences to the families of victims and those who have lost so much.
The international community should mobilize immediately to provide the republic of Mexico with all necessary assistance. The Vice-President of UIA Region III and the UIA Secretariat in Paris are prepared, if necessary, to act in support of the Federation of Colleges of Architects of Mexico. The UIA will publish news of developments on its website, inviting architects all around the world to exchange experience and information that might prove to be useful to Mexico.
With best wishes for the rapid restoration of normal living conditions, we express our sympathy and support.
