Le ministre des Antiquités égyptiennes: "L'UNESCO nie avoir supprimé Le Caire historique de la liste du Patrimoine mondial" | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

أكد الدكتور محمد إبراهيم، وزير الدولة لشئون الآثار المصرية إن البعثة الفنية التي أوفدتها اليونسكو للقاهرة أكدت أنها لم تناقش أية موضوعات تتعلق بمنطقة القاهرة التاريخية، وان ما أثير في إحدى المواقع الإخبارية الالكترونية برفعها من قائمة التراث العالمي غير صحيح جملة وتفصيلا.

وأشار إبراهيم – فى تصريح له اليوم – إلى أن البعثة أوضحت إن مهمتها الطارئة في مصر تنحصر في تقييم حجم الضرر الذي أصاب المتحف الإسلامي ودار الوثائق القومية لتقدير قيمة المساعدات التى من الممكن ان تقدم لهيكلة المتحف والدار وإعادتهما إلى ما كانا عليه

The UNESCO expressed its deep concern about the damage to the Islamic Art Museum in a blast that targeted Cairo Security Directorate early on Friday.

The museum, which faces the directorate's main entrance on Port Said Street, sustained serious damage.

"I firmly condemn this attack and the destruction it has caused to the world-renowned Museum of Islamic Art in Cairo, which hosts thousands of invaluable artefacts," said Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO.

"I pledge today that I will mobilise all of UNESCO's experience and expertise to rebuilding the Museum and restoring the damage – this is as essential for the people of Egypt as it is for women and men across the world."

Bokova also applauded the Ministry of Antiquities's immediate action to salvage the museum's artifacts and take measures to conserve them.

Egypt's Minister of Antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim said the museum has been completely destroyed by the bombing.

Initial estimates reveal that most of the museum's interior decorations were destroyed, the ceiling fell and the glass fronts were smashed, the minister said in a statement.

During her meeting with the Prime Minister of Egypt, Dr. Hisham Qandeel, the Director-General, Irina Bokova, underscored UNESCO’s commitment to Egypt and expressed her strong support for Egypt’s current transformation process towards democracy. “Cooperation between Egypt and UNESCO has always been very strong part of the Organization’s history,” said Irina Bokova.

The Prime Minister welcomed the Director-General’s commitment to join forces with Egypt in the country’s transformations.

“Education plays a fundamental role for social justice and social cohesion”, stated Prime Minister Hisham Qandeel. "We rely on UNESCO’s support in bringing education back to its original role, that of educating responsible citizens," he added.

The Prime Minister further emphasized the central role of water for sustainable development, and called on UNESCO to build capacities in countries along the Nile Basin, in order to support water cooperation, share best practices on groundwater resources management, boost institutional capacities of existing institutes in the Nile Basin countries and enhance regional cooperation through research and networking. The Prime Minister also voiced his concern for the preservation of cultural heritage in the occupied Palestinian territory and thanked UNESCO for its continued efforts to support preservation efforts.

Egypt’s 10-year strategy for reforming education was also the subject of the Director-General’s meeting with Minister of Education, Mr. Ibrahim Ghoneim, who recalled that Egypt counted 18 million students, 1.2 million teachers and 700.000 administrators. He further added that the Ministry aimed to reach 60% access to early childhood care and education by 2015.
