    The Minister of Culture, Tourism and Antiquities, Dr. Hassan Nazim, discussed in Paris with French Culture Minister Roselyn Bachelot ways to enhance cultural cooperation between the two countries, particularly in the field of heritage.
    "The French Minister of Culture expressed her pleasure at the strength of cultural ties between the two countries and praised the Iraqi government's efforts to rehabilitate archaeological sites affected by terrorist attacks," the ministry said in a statement received by the Iraqi News Agency (INA) on Saturday.
    "France continues to support Iraq not only morally, but France can be a partner in implementing projects in the field of cultural heritage and developing capacity with training programs in different disciplines, not to mention the continued contribution of major French cultural institutions to the revival of heritage," she said.
