1784 Iranian historic objects to be repatriated from US

Some 1784 Iranian historic objects will be repatriated from US, Vice President and Head of Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization Ali Asghar Munesan said.
Munesan made the remarks while visiting Pars tourism exhibition in Shiraz, Fars province on Wednesday night, according to IRNA.

The permission to repatriate these clay tablets which belong to Persepolis has been issued by US Treasury Department, he said.

About 11,000 objects have been estimated to exist in Chicago University, he added.

On the pretext of sanctions, the objects were said to be delivered in the US, he said, adding that we hope to receive them in The Hague.

They said that the remaining objects will be delivered in a three-year period but we did not accept and are negotiating to get them sooner, Munesan said.

I think losing your travel documents, money, and your phone in a foreign country is on the top place in the list of top things you must be scared of when you go abroad. You can google the list of the cities famous for their pickpockets and purse-snatchers. Now, if you’re coming to Iran, hearing the financial news in Iran might worry you a little; and in fact, the tourist centres and crowded areas are no exception in this case. But statistics show that Iran is almost a lot better and safer than other countries in this case. But, only in case you want to travel with peace of mind, keep these points in mind: • You don’t have carry your passport with you to everywhere you go; only a copy of that would suffice. No one usually asks for it. • You will need cash, but you shouldn’t carry all the cash you have with you. • I suggest you to put your eggs in different baskets, I mean split your money and put it in different places so in case you get robbed, you will have some money left. • It’t better to use bags and handbags instead of backpack in crowded places like bazaars; so you can always watch the zippers. • And always keep an eye on your phone!
