"Azerbaijan will claim for inclusion of several sites on the World Heritage List during the 44th session of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee next year".
Report informs that Azerbaijani Minister of Culture
Garayev said that inscription of Sheki on UNESCO's World Heritage List is a success of the country: "We should feel proud that the number of cultural facilities included in the list is increasing."
The minister said that the claim on inscription of Sheki to the list was initiated 6 years ago. The government and the public should seriously analyze the results of the 43rd Session of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee held in Baku. There are 6,700 historical monuments in Azerbaijan. It is impossible to restore all these monuments in a short time. This process is carried out step-by-step. For example, Chiraggala was in a dangerous situation and we began to restore it."
