UNESCO Director-General and Heads of agencies discuss means to strengthen the fight against illicit trafficking

The UNESCO Director-General, Irina Bokova, convened a videoconference call at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, with the respective Heads of INTERPOL, UNIDROIT, UNODC and WCO, to measure progress and identity future collaborative actions, in close coordination with the UNSMT, for the effective implementation of the United Security Council Resolution 2199 and 2253 (2015) on the fight against illicit trafficking of cultural objects.

The videoconference with the involved intergovernmental agencies, part of the larger network the UNESCO Director-General launched during the high level meeting on 1 April 2015, was an opportunity to ascertain areas of further collaborative action to be taken towards Member States during the course of the year.
