KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): An agreement has been signed with the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) on the conservation of key historic sites in Kabul, the Ministry of Urban Development and Housing announced on Friday.

The memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed by Sadat Mansoor Naderi, the urban development minister, and Luis Monreal, general manager of AKTC, on the sidelines of the Brussels Conference.

A statement from the ministry said the MoU encompassed a multi-year partnership for urban planning activities and implementation of several projects that would protect heritage assets of the capital city.

This public-private cooperation aims to further develop aspects of heritage management principles outlined in the Afghan government’s Urban National Priority Programme (UNPP).

AKTC will provide technical assistance on planning and conservation activities currently being undertaken by the government in the former Royal Palace and the wider Darul Aman neighbourhood.
