Live: Culture Connect – Inside the National Museum of Afghanistan

Live: culture connect - inside the national museum of afghanistan

CGTN published this video item, entitled “Live: Culture Connect – Inside the National Museum of Afghanistan” – below is their description.

As for Afghanistan, during wars from 1990 to 2001, the artifacts in the National Museum were severely damaged. To protect them, the Afghan government decided to relocate them, and it wasn’t until 2003 that they were retrieved by archaeologists. Since 2016, the treasures have been exhibited around the world, in countries such as China, France, Italy, the Netherlands, the U.S., Australia and Japan. Also Chinese museums have been displaying these ancient cultural treasures from Afghanistan with the aim of protecting them before they are shipped to another country for exhibition. Zmaryali Abasin, our reporter takes us on a tour around the museum, showing us some major elements/collections to shed light on the significance of preserving ancient civilizations between countries, especially in the war time, and how respecting different civilizations is the key to maintaining its diversity and sustaining humanity. #CultureConnect
