Alsahwa Net- The Yemeni government has requested the American government to ban circulation of the Yemeni cultural antique in the American market, Marwan Dammaj, the Minister of Culture said.
The state-run Saba News Agency quoted Dammaj saying that the advisory board of the American government will meet on 29 October 2019 to discuss the Yemeni request.
The Yemeni government’s request requires the United States of America (USA) to ban import and transfer of the Yemeni antiques in the USA.
The request is based on the article No. 9 of the UNESCO convention concerning the protection of the world cultural and natural heritage which Yemen finalized procedures of its ratification early last September.
Dammaj said that the Yemeni Embassy in Washington exerts great efforts on this issue to ban circulation of the Yemeni antiques in the US markets.
