Kuwait hosts 7th Islamic heritage meeting

KUWAIT, Oct 24 (KUNA) – Kuwait hosts on Tuesday the 7th meeting of the Islamic World Heritage Committee, an affiliate of the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO).

The agenda comprises an international seminar on immaterial heritage in the Islamic world.

The Secretariat of the Kuwait’s National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters (NCCAL) hosts the cultural events.

The three-day meeting will discuss requests and files submitted by the ISESCO member states on sites they want to add to the list of the Islamic World Heritage Committee, NCCAL said in a press release.

In addition, participants will review a regular report from the organization’s experts entrusted with preparing reports on the Israeli aggression on Al-Aqsa Mosque, and on Jerusalem.

They will also address potential steps to be taken following the recent UNESCO resolution reiterating Jerusalem’s Islamic identity.

Further, the meeting will review findings on the Islamic intangible heritage, in a bid to prepare an ISESCO future strategy on the issue.

The statement noted that the heritage meeting and seminar are part of the “Kuwait Capital of Islamic Culture 2016” celebrations.
