Ecuador and Brazil sign Cooperation Agreement of Cultural Property stolen or illegally exported

In this agreement, the Governments of Ecuador and Brazil recognize the importance of protecting the cultural heritage of both countries and they are aware of the serious damage that represents for both contracting parties the theft and illegal export of objects that compose this heritage. The loss of cultural assets and the damage that is put on upon archaeological spaces, such as churches and other deposit places.

With the purpose of establishing common standards to allow the recovery of these possessions in question, in cases where these are stolen, illicitly imported or exported, both contracting parties assume the entire responsibility to prohibit and prevent the income in their respective territories of these cultural, patrimonial and other specific property from the other contracting party that lack the respective authorization for export.
