A source in UNESCO’s Cairo office said Egyptian monuments will not be removed from the world heritage list after Egypt was voted out of the World Heritage Committee in elections conducted on November 7.
The source also said Egypt’s monuments will remain in the list of monuments that should be protected and kept as international heritage.
The source told Youm7 there is no permanent committee member, adding that the membership of a country should end after their term. The source also said it is not unusual the general assembly elect nine new members to replace the countries whose terms ended.
Algeria, Colombia, Germany, India, Japan, Qatar, Malaysia, Senegal, and Serbia are the nine countries elected for four-year terms.
The World Heritage Committee meets once a year and works to execute the world heritage agreement to keep the UNESCO list of international heritage.
