Loaned Heritage Items in Peril

Recent tensions in Iran's relations with the western world following the US withdrawal from the nuclear deal and the imminent resumption of sanctions have been grounds for worry about the safe return of Iranian heritage objects currently on exhibit in foreign countries.
Iran is holding two exhibitions of its heritage properties in foreign countries at the moment. 
An event titled Empire of Roses in Louvre-Lens—an art museum in Lens, northern France—has been showcasing 19 items from Golestan Palace plus two precious objects from the National Museum of Iran since late March. It is set to run through July 23, Mehr News Agency reported. 
Another set of 196 pieces has only recently gone on display at the art and history museum of Drents in Assen, the Netherlands. It will continue until November 18.
