Macron Vows Notre Dame Cathedral Will Be Rebuilt 'Within 5 Years'

Francois-Henri Pinault chief executive officer of Kering SA speaks during a news conference

The head of Egypt's Copts, Pope Tawadroz II, said in a statement that the fire was a "huge loss for entire humanity" and affected "one of the most important monuments in the world".

Men work on a statue on a facade at Notre-Dame Cathedral after a massive fire devastated large parts of the gothic structure in Paris, France, April 16, 2019.

The building was heavily damaged in the blaze and two-thirds of the cathedral's wooden roof were destroyed in the fire. He called Notre Dame a "priceless treasure of Christian and world culture" and said Russian Federation is ready to send the "best specialists" to help rebuild it. A spokesperson said tour groups will probably still want to have a look at the cathedral, although French officials are not allowing any members of the public to get too close.

Lesley, 38, said she hoped the image would "bring comfort" to those who were distressed by the fire at the historic building.

Tusk, who chairs summits of EU national leaders, told lawmakers Tuesday that the blaze reminds Europeans of "how much we can lose".

"Again, just so many similarities between the two".

"Our history never stops and that we will always have trials to overcome", he said.

Parliament President Antonio Tajani invited European Union lawmakers, meeting in Strasbourg, France, to contribute their day's salary to help finance reconstruction.

Mailhot, a former director of the St. Boniface Museum, and Father Marcel Carriere, the current pastor at St. Boniface Cathedral, both see many similarities between the fires in Paris and in St. Boniface 50 years earlier, although the scale of the buildings was quite different.

"We can thank God that there were no victims", he said on Tuesday. Mateusz Morawiecki said on Twitter that "Poland knows what it means to have a cultural heritage lost in fire".

French billionaire Bernard Arnault and his LVMH luxury conglomerate, rival high-end designer goods group Kering, Total oil company and cosmetics giant L'Oreal each pledged 100 million euros or more. The French Interior Ministry announced yesterday that "the walls have been preserved and at least 30pc of the artworks have been saved", but the entire wooden structure, the spire and almost 70pc of the artworks have gone forever.

French banks also made donations to the restoration of the cathedral.

"Notre Dame was destroyed but the soul of France was not", Michel Aupetit, archbishop of Paris, said on RMC radio. He called the structure "a part of us", referring to the country of France, and he asked for help repairing it.

Speaking Tuesday, he said the cathedral's roof can not be rebuilt exactly as it was before the fire because "we don't, at the moment, have trees on our territory of the size that were cut in the 13th century". Heitz said investigators would interview workers from five companies working on the restoration.

France has vowed to rebuild the beloved Parisian landmark after the fire gutted the roof and ruined the spire.

The fire at the 856-year-old cathedral began Monday evening local time.
