CHTO Experts to Demarcate Borders of Persian Empire

 

24 June 2005

  

 

Iran’s Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization (CHTO) is planning to prepare a map of the Persian Empire of the Achaemenid era demarcating its exact borders, the director of the CHTO Ancient Monuments Research Center announced on Friday.

 

A team of experts will later begin research based on those borders, Mohammad-Hassan Mohebali added. “This will help to accurately document the limits of the empire and identify the historical monuments belonging to the ancient Iranian civilization in neighboring countries,” he explained. Mohebali said that the research project requires the cooperation of neighboring countries and Iranian officials.

 

Iranian culture, civilization, and history are still evident in the former provinces, and today newly created countries of Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Pakistan, and the Arran (Azerbaijan) Republic. 

 

Establishing academic ties and signing agreements with countries are some of the duties of the CHTO, which also plans to sign joint research, renovation, and tourism memoranda of understanding with other Middle Eastern countries, Mohebali added.

 

The organization recently signed agreements with Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, and Kyrgyzstan .

 

“The MOUs will help prepare the ground for the research work and renovation of historical monuments,” he said in conclusion.
