MP Samakov: "Japanese archaeologists are interested in the ancient settlement Suyab"

Bishkek, June 26 / Kabar /. Japanese archaeologists are interested in the ancient settlement Suyab. Member of Parliament Karganbek Samakov told speaking on Parliament radio. 

He said that the Tien-Shan corridor is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List as part of transnational nomination "Silk Road". More than 50 such transnational corridors will be created, which cover a number of countries from China to Japan.

"Russian, Japanese archaeologists have shown great interest in Suyab, Balasagyn and Nevaket that have thousand years of history, and contain valuable archaeological finds. For example, in 1996 a statue of Buddha was found on the ruins of the city Suyab, which is now exhibited in the State Hermitage Museum. We could develop our museums and attract tourists," said Samakov. 

He also said that Japanese archaeologists are willing to build a museum on the site of the remains of the city Suyab that will store the artifacts found during excavations. MP also expressed concern about the preservation of national parks for example Saymaly-Tash, as a number of stone images (petroglyphs) in this place decreased significantly. 

Touching upon the preservation of national monuments, K. Samakov proposed to actively develop the architecture around the Sulayman-Too mountain. 
He also said that in the near future the including of National Dance "Kara Jorgo" and Kyrgyz yurt in the List of Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO will be considered.

Recall that a number of historical monuments in Kyrgyzstan - the remains of cities Suyab, Balasagyn, Nevaket included on the World Heritage List of UNESCO. This decision was taken June 22, 2014 in Doha (Qatar) at the session of the Intergovernmental Committee of the World Heritage Site.
