UNESCO reviewing Turkey’s suggestion on Rumi’s travel route

Iranian cultural attaché to Ankara said UNESCO is reviewing a preliminary plan suggested by Turkey to register the travel routes of the 13th-century Persian poet, Molavi, also known as Rumi, from Afghanistan to Iran and then to Anadolu, Turkey.

Mahmoud Sedqizadeh told a Mehr correspondent on Sunday that Turkey had recently submitted a plan to UNESCO and is seeking cooperation from Iran and Afghanistan to revive Rumi’s travel routes as a tourism attraction.

According to Sedqizadeh, the plan is temporary and is awaiting Iran’s response.

Turkey is planning to inscribe the plan as a multinational case on UNESCO’s heritage list, he said, adding that Iran and Afghanistan have been asked to determine their own share in the case and provide the necessary conditions for it.
