The largest center of smuggling of cultural heritage is the Turkish city of Gaziantep, where stolen valuables are put up for sale at illegal auctions, sold through a network of antique shops and in the local market "Bakirjılır Charshysy" (Szhekeroglu district, Eski Saray str.), The newspaper quotes the letter Look.

"These facts are being seriously investigated," the Turkish Foreign Ministry said.

"Turkey will do everything in its power to protect cultural treasures, which are the common heritage of mankind, and to ensure that they will be handed over to future generations",

      Then, when our sappers mine Palmyra. Mihan! Remember the childhood and history lessons on which it was said that the taken city was given for three days for looting.

      But what's the problem? To equate this action to aiding terrorists with all that it implies and those who wish to take risks will decrease. Moreover, prosecution without statute of limitations, including by inheritance.

    He outlined the facts of the sale of artifacts stolen from the conflict zone in Turkey.

    And they (artifacts) replenish private collections of "civilized and law-abiding" Anglo-Saxons with Europeans. But the West is modestly silent about this.

      But why? They will make documents that they bought at auctions and put up in the largest museums in the world.

        It is unlikely that it was not for this that some museums were robbed (and they spent dozens of Baku lamas on the acquisition of artifacts) that would then be exhibited in others. hi

    A crafty statement guarantees only that cultural treasures will be sold intact, and the Turks will defend their goods sparingly.

    “Turkey will do everything in its power to protect the cultural treasures that are the common heritage of mankind and to ensure that they are completely passed on to future generations”

    Reminded:
    - Question: why do women have wrinkles from top to bottom, and for men - horizontally?
    -Answer: The husband comes home from work a little "podsafe". Wife (hands on hips and knitting eyebrows - hence the wrinkles from top to bottom): "Well, where's the money?" The husband smiles sweetly, taking off his shoes and raising his eyebrows under his hairdo (hence the wrinkles parallel to the horizon): "What money ???".

    So the Ottomans with regard to artifacts - eyebrows under the bangs and: "What is such a ratifact? I haven't seen anything, I didn't take a nickname, sculpting itself - give money." bully

    Those who bought these historic trinkets are unaware of their negative energy. This can manifest itself in any form of changes in health, well-being. Confirmed by peoples and history. Example ... a big blue diamond ... all the owners bent after buying this mineral in the shortest possible time.

    If you think about it for a minute: "" Turkey will do everything in its power to protect cultural treasures, which are the common heritage of mankind, and to ensure that they will be passed on to future generations intact, "it is immediately clear that the Turks are not are going to cover up this channel of antiques smuggling and publicly declare this.

    I don’t believe a single word of these people from Turkey’s Foreign Ministry; all these years of the war they dragged everything that was possible from Syria to the hush, and now we’re supposedly white and fluffy. stop
