The Bahraini minister, while appreciating the holding of the session of the World Heritage Committee in Baku, noted that Azerbaijan standsat a very high level.
“Everything is organized very well,” she said. “Azerbaijan has several times proved that it can organize events of a global scale at a high level. I am sure that this session will be successful as well.”
She noted that not only organizations, but also every person should pay attention to the issue of preserving world heritage.
“Humanity is experiencing a period of intensive scientific and technological progress,” she said. “This development is in itself wonderful. However, the ongoing military clashes, occupation and other events leave the cultural heritage of millennia to face the danger of extinction, sometimes in a very short time."
"Therefore, support should be provided to the work of UNESCO and a number of agencies operating within its structure. In this sense, I believe that in the session being held in Baku, the right decisions will be made from the point of view of protecting the world heritage,” she added.
The 43rd session of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee is held from June 30 to July 10, 2019.
