Abu Dhabi, Sep 13 (IANS/WAM) The United Arab Emirates has said it will provide urgent humanitarian aid to quake-hit Mexico.

The move comes on directives of President Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and will be delivered by the Emirates Red Crescent in response to the international calls for relief following the powerful quake last week that left over 90 people dead and more than 10,000 displaced, the media report said on Wednesday.

The ERC will work on delivering the aid in collaboration with the Embassy in Mexico in order to ensure immediate provision to the stricken areas.
