In a meeting between Iran's top cultural heritage authority and Austrian officials in Tehran on Monday, Iran was invited to join the International Committee of the Blue Shield by establishing a national center to help protect the region's heritage assets.  
ICBS, also described as Cultural Red Cross, was established in 1996 to protect the world's cultural heritage threatened by wars and natural disasters. 
Karl von Habsburg, a key Austrian political figure who heads the Association of National Committees of Blue Shield, along with Austrian ambassador in Tehran Stephan Scholz, met with Mohammad Hassan Talebian, deputy at Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization. 
Pointing out that over 40 countries have so far set up national committees of Blue Shield, Scholz called for the establishment of premises in Iran on behalf of Habsburg.
