Turkey's security authorities are coordinating efforts to report antiquities smuggling from Iraqi and Syria.
Turkish police and custom departments are playing important roles to preserving antiquities that are smuggled from Syria, and are working with the authorities concerned to prevent this from happening, Minister of Culture and Tourism Omer Celik said in a statement. The ministry, he added, was exchanging relevant information with security authorities and other ministries, and would organize seminars next month about means of dealing with smuggled antiquities.
