UNESCO Asks for Culture and Heritage Protection in Afghanistan


Kabul, 20 August 2021 (TDI): UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay seeks engagements for the protection of the Culture and Heritage of Afghanistan following the mercurial situation in the country.

UNESCO has been closely observing the turbulence in the country since last week. The organization calls for the security of the identity and traditions of Afghanistan which play significant roles in the national cohesion of the country. Heritage landmarks in Afghanistan especially, the UNESCO World Heritage sites of the Minaret, archaeological remains of Jam, the landscape of the Bamiyan Valley, and the Old City of Herat hold great importance in the cultural history of Afghanistan. These landmarks, along with the contemporary arts, ¬†artists, and professionals, must be safeguarded to protect the country’s social fabric.

UNESCO also underscores the importance of prevention of damage and looting at these sites following the recent chaos. Any ignorance in the protection of culture and heritage in Afghanistan will have grave repercussions on the peace and harmony of the country.
