FES, Morocco: Kuwait is eager to preserve cultural heritage as a means of bringing nations closer, said the National Council for Culture, Arts, and Letters (NCCAL). Kuwait had taken steps to preserve historic and cultural sites by fencing archeological sites, following the terms of Kuwait’s archeology law, said head of the archeology and museums department at NCCAL Mohammad Bin Redha in a statement to KUNA on Thursday during the 26th Conference on Archeology and Cultural Heritage in the Arab World, held in Morocco on Thursday.
