Experts adopt 'Seoul recommendation' on repatriating cultural heritages

Hundreds of experts both at home and abroad have adopted a recommendation on the return of cultural properties not covered by international legal instruments, Seoul's foreign ministry said Thursday.

The recommendation is the outcome of the International Conference of Experts on the Return of Cultural Property held in Seoul on Oct. 16-17 with the aim to give experts the chance to share their experiences and ideas on repatriating cultural assets, the ministry said.

The two-day forum, hosted by the Cultural Heritage Administration, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Overseas Korean Cultural Heritage Foundation, was attended by more than 200 experts in the field from more than 10 countries and international organizations.
