    ISESCO to support Guinea to inscribe heritage sites on IWHL

    10 January 2020

    As part of his official visit to the Republic of Guinea, the Director General of the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO), Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, met with Mr. Sanoussy Bantama Sow, Guinean Minister of Culture, Heritage and Sports, and together they discussed cooperation development between ISESCO and the Ministry, namely with regards to heritage and historic sites in Guinea.

    During the meeting, the two parties discussed the importance of inscribing Guinean historic sites on the Islamic World Heritage List (IWHL) where ISESCO made a great achievement by inscribing 132 sites in 17 countries on the List. They also agreed to inscribe a number of Guinean sites on the List and offer a workshop for technical executives in charge of preparing and submitting inscription files on ISESCO and UNESCO heritage lists.

    For his part, Dr. AlMalik pointed out that ISESCO would extend support, by means of its technical expertise in the field, to restore and preserve heritage sites in danger in Guinea and discharge its role in assisting Member States to protect and preserve their cultural heritage to remain a civilizational heritage for next generations and contribute to achieving sustainable development.

    At the close of the meeting, Mr. Sow promised to offer many artifacts to ISESCO, which are emblematic to cultural and civilizational innovation in Guinea, to be exhibited at its headquarters in Rabat.
