    Subject: Draft UNESCO Declaration Concerning the Intentional
        Destruction of the Cultural Heritage (English, Francais,

    The official papers now being distributed to all Member States
    of UNESCO as part of the documents for the Autumn 2003 UNESCO
    General Conference include a draft Resolution prepared by the
    Director-General on the instructions of the Executive Board
    proposing that the forthcoming General Conference should adopt
    an official UNESCO Recommendation concerning the deliberate
    destruction of the cultural heritage--whether in armed conflict
    or in other circumstances.

    The text of the draft Resolution and Recommendation is now
    available on the UNESCO web site in all six UNESCO official
    languages, including:




    In view of the numerous cases of deliberate destruction of the
    cultural heritage in almost every part of the world over the
    past few years, I presume that all museum and heritage
    professionals and organisations will want to give this
    initiative the widest possible support, and will encourage their
    governments to support this initiative in the UNESCO General
    Conference, and then implement the various Recommendations.
