via Frontier Myanmar, 12 April 2019: Myanmar’s Ministry of Religious Affairs and Culture calling on diplomats for support in the listing of Bagan.

The Ministry of Religious Affairs and Culture on Friday called on foreign diplomats to encourage members of the World Heritage Committee to grant World Heritage status to Bagan when the committee meets in June.

At an event at the National Museum in Yangon, deputy religious affairs and culture minister U Kyi Min told diplomats and representatives of the World Bank and the Japan International Cooperation Agency that Myanmar was looking forward to securing World Heritage status for Bagan with the support of the international community.

“I believe you all agree that Bagan should be a World Heritage site. May we again ask you to inform your governments to recommend that Bagan be included on the list,” Kyi Min said to the diplomats, including those from Australia, China, France, India and South Korea.
