Commenting article: UNESCO, Italy Join Forces to Protect Cultural Heritage from Extremists

UNESCO Director-General  Irina Bokova and Italy’s Foreign Minister Paolo Gentilon have  signed an agreement for the establishment of an Italian Task Force for the protection of cultural heritage from extremists.

“The creation of this Task Force by the Italian Government comes as a direct response to the destruction of cultural heritage in the Middle East and across the globe in recent conflicts,” UNESCO said in a statement on Tuesday following the signing ceremony in Rome.

The task force will be set  up  in the framework of UNESCO Global Coalition “Unite4Heritage”. Its members will be ready to deploy, at the request of UNESCO, to assist in safeguarding cultural heritage at risk.
