Greece’s Foreign Minister Nikos Kotsias attended the meeting of the Forum of Ancient Civilisations in New York after completing his meetings in the framework of the 73rd Session of the UN General Assembly.
Kotzias and his foreign counterparts attended the forum for a second consecutive year on the sidelines of the UN ministerial week in New York with representations from additional countries such as Peru, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Armenia and, of course, presiding Bolivia.
All participating Ministers agreed on the willingness to develop specific mechanisms to promote the activities of the Forum. In particular, Member States have agreed to intensify their cooperation with UNESCO, with the key priority being to protect cultural heritage and cultural goods.
The current presidency will host the academic forum on December 20-21 in Bolivia following the April 2017 meeting in Athens.
