Egyptian Parliament Approves Antiquities Agreement with Ecuador

CAIRO – The upper house of Egypt’s Parliament approved an agreement on Sunday that was signed with Ecuador in 2008 and opens the way for the recovery of antiquities stolen and taken illegally to the South American country, the official MENA news agency reported.

Egypt and Ecuador, under the terms of the agreement, ban and criminalize trafficking in ancient, cultural, art and historical items stolen from either country.

Cairo and Quito agreed to take the necessary measures via diplomatic channels to return antiquities to their country of origin.

Egypt and Ecuador will also issue reports on stolen cultural heritage and historical items if attempts to sell such items are discovered.

The agreement was signed as part of “efforts by the Supreme Antiquities Council to recover Egyptian antiquities that have illegally left Egypt and are in other countries,” MENA said.
