KABUL: The Acting Minis ter of Information and Culture Mullah Khairullah Khairkhwa, in a ceremony held on the occasion of International Museum Day, said that after the resumption of power by the Islamic Emirate, the trafficking of 1,500 historical relics has been thwarted in the country, according to a statement from the ministry Saturday. During the event, the exhibition of the Islamic Age, Bronze Age, and Ai-Khanom Age has been held, the statement said. Addressing the exhibition, Mullah Khairkhwa said that after the takeover of the country by the Islamic Emirate, 5,000 historical relics have been transferred to the National Museum of the country and 2,000 historical relics have been renovated, according to the statement. The historical artifacts smuggled out of Afghanistan are the national wealth and property of Afghanistan, said Khairkhwa, asking the relevant international organizations to help the Islamic Emirate in the return and safety of the historical relics. International Museum Day is an international day held annually on around 18 May, coordinated by the International Council of Museums. The event highlights a specific theme that changes every year reflecting a relevant theme or issue facing museums internationally. The Islamic Golden Age was a period of scientific, economic and cultural flourishing in the history of Islam, traditionally dated from the 8th century to the 13th century. The Bronze Age is a historical period lasting from approximately 3300 to 1200 BC. It is characterized by the use of bronze, the use of writing in some areas, and other features of early urban civilization. The Bronze Age is the middle principal period of the three-age system, between the Stone and Iron Ages. The Kabul Times
