Members of the Islamic Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) have elected Egypt to be coordinator of the Islamic World Heritage Committee (IWHC).

The selection came during the ISESCO’s fourth annual session, held in Yemen.

Minister of State for Antiquities Mohamed Ibrahim said that the vote was the result of the recognition of Egypt’s importance in archaeological and cultural heritage and its role in preserving and protecting the country’s tangible and intangible cultural heritage.

The fifth session of the IWHC will be held in Egypt next year at the Nubia museum in Aswan.
