Arasbaran Wins Second Chance to Get Global Status

UNESCO's World Heritage Committee has given Arasbaran Forests, an Iranian nominated property, another chance to gain a global status, providing that its dossier is properly revised and the shortcomings are addressed. 
During the UNESCO's 42nd World Heritage Committee Session, underway in Bahrain since June 24, the experts decided to give more time to the Iranian heritage authorities to revise the dossier, in order not to lose the chance for the next round's nomination, IRNA reported. 
The credentials of the forest in East Azarbaijan Province had been earlier deemed unqualified for the registration in the list of World Heritage Sites as faults had been flagged in the Technical Evaluation process carried out by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
