The Cyprus authorities are on high alert as far as cultural property from war-torn Iraq and Syria is concerned, Education and Culture Minister Costas Kadis said on Friday. 

“Especially due to our geographical proximity to these countries,” Kadis also said in an address at the 38th General Conference of UNESCO.

As of September 2015, Cyprus is a member of the Subsidiary Committee of the Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property, he added.
