A new in­ter­na­tional part­ner­ship aimed at pro­tect­ing cul­tural her­itage dur­ing armed con­flicts is to be an­nounced by the UAE and France at the Safe­guard­ing En­dan­gered Cul­tural Her­itage Con­fer­ence in Abu Dhabi. This ini­tia­tive will be launched by HH Sheikh Mo­hamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Com­man­der of the UAE Armed Forces, and Fran­cois Hol­lande, Pres­i­dent of France, dur­ing the con­fer­ence on De­cem­ber 2 and 3 at Emi­rates Palace.
