Antiquities Ministry in cooperation with foreign Ministry managed to restore three ancient Egyptian artifacts.

Earlier، these artifacts were smuggled but Consulate General of Egypt in New York received them today to send them to Egypt.

This comes under 1970 (UNESCO) Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import، Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property

Over the past few years official efforts to counter the smuggling of artifacts have resulted in the repatriation of hundreds of relics from abroad to Egypt.
