The Director-General of the Office for the Registration of Works, Preservation, and Restoration of Intangible Cultural Heritage believes that: Izeh has a high chance in UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Due to the special capabilities of Khuzestan province in the areas of high historical value, Izeh is one of the regions that can have numerous works in the form of cultural-archaeological landscapes.
According to ISNA, based on the announcement of Khuzestan’s cultural heritage, he continued: “We propose to re-evaluate and prevent the global registration file of this city so that with the finalization of this process, Khuzestan province will once again have the opportunity to win this title.”
Emphasizing creating the necessary conditions in the province to speed up the obstacles of the Izeh World Register case, he said:
“Khuzestan province must act with more power in removing the obstacles in this case and the necessary coordination at the provincial management level and the General Directorate of Cultural Heritage.”
We believe that Izeh has world heritage factors in terms of outstanding values.”
The organs and associations involved in the Izeh World Registration case can facilitate the discussion of the acquisition and liberation of disputed lands. The situations are ready for Khuzestan to reach the fourth UNESCO World site. It is necessary at the request of the General Directorate of Cultural Heritage, Tourism, and Khuzestan Handicrafts. Let’s have a meeting about this case in Tehran.
