Precious Forest's Global Heritage Status Pending

The dossier of Arasbaran Forest in East Azarbaijan Province has faced technical issues hindering its inscription in the list of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites once more.
Mohammad Hassan Talebian, heritage deputy at Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, announced that unluckily, despite Iranian officials' efforts, during the Technical Evaluation process, the International Union for Conservation of Nature deemed Arasbaran as unqualified for the registration.
"The structure of the dossier was very complicated and multi-dimensional, having made it harder for the relevant officials to wrap it up, especially given the extensive range of criteria to be met," ISNA quoted him as saying.
