Afghan, Japanese, French and German specialists met to discuss whether two ancient statues of Buddha in Bamyan, Afghanistan should be restored

International specialists met to discuss whether two ancient statues of Buddha in Bamiyan, Afghanistan should be restored. 

The Government of Afghanistan has agreed with international experts to repair one of the Buddha statues called ‘Shahmama’ using the original material.

The participants in the meeting also agreed to establish a recreation park in the area between the two statues. This comes as previous meetings on rehabilitation of the statues had failed to reach a decision.

[The Taliban dynamited the 56m Salsal statues and its female 38m Shamama in 2001.]
