Yemeni Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism Muammar Al-Eryani has lauded Saudi Arabia for its support to Yemen’s government to protect local heritage and antiquities, and increase institutional potentials to preserve cultural property.

That support is represented by the Saudi Ministry of Culture and the Saudi Development and Reconstruction Program for Yemen (SDRPY).

The Yemeni minister's remarks came in a statement published by the official Yemeni news agency on Saturday.

He called for holding an international conference to preserve and protect Yemeni antiquities, and to mobilize the necessary financial and technical resources to help protect and maintain them.

He also called for agreements to protect Yemeni antiquities from illicit trafficking and drying up an important resource of terrorist financing globally.
