Afghanistan having a rich history has been the center of civilization and has been a focal point of trade and migration.
The great history of ancient Silk route better reflects the important of the issues.
Currently, 1200 historical relics have been confirmed across our country and 90% of the ancient heritage belongs to Islamic period and the rest to the per-Islamic era.
We should remember that all of these monuments were part of the endeavors and struggles of our nation and regrettably most of the relics which said to be Islamic period relics are now moving towards destruction.
The ministry of Information and Culture for this matter had held several international and national meetings and discussion with international society, and has requested their serious attention towards the preservation of our cultural assets which not only reflects the great culture and civilization of the great motherland but also is a part of world cultural heritage.
The minister of Information and Culture with the close coordination of friend countries has also worked on planes how to rehabilitate the historic locations of our country which the Great and historical province of Ghazni is a good example of the subject.
The ministry with lack of professional engineers and equipments is endeavoring to renovate the cultural relics of that province which the projects require more attention of professional and at the same time a budget.
That doubtlessly the motioned elements would better play its role in the renovation process.
In order to keep the rich heritage of our great Afghanistan alive, the ministry of Information and Culture once again is desirous from the international community and call on Afghan nation and trader to contribute in this national process and perform their national obligation and assist the ministry in implementation of the preservation projects of the monuments.
