  • [01] Greek-Turkish protocol against illegal trading of artifacts

    ISTANBUL (ANA-MPA) -- Greece and Turkey on Wednesday signed a cooperation protocol here to combat the illegal trafficking of works of art and cultural artifacts.

    The protocol was signed by visiting Greek Culture Minister Pavlos Geroulanos and his Turkish counterpart Ertugrul Gunay during a brief ceremony at the Ciragan Palace.

    "This is the first agreement signed after the 20 agreements signed in Athens, and it retains particular significance and symbolism because it is the first to deal with culture and the two countries' relations and possible cooperation to promote culture and its protection," Geroulanos said.

    Gunay expressed a hope that all of the illegally trafficked artifacts and works of art will be returned.

    Earlier, the Greek minister was received at the Ecumenical Patriarchate by Patriarch Bartholomew. (ANA-MPA)
