TEHRAN, Jan. 23 (MNA) – Iran has emerged victorious in a decades-long legal dispute with the US over the return of 3000 ancient fossils.
Public Relations of Iran Presidential Office for International Legal Affairs announced the fossils belonging to various terrestrial eras were discovered in 1975 and 1976 after a joint team of Iranian and American explorers, led by the professor of anthropology at the University of California Dr. Bernard G. Campbell, operated explorations in Maragheh and around Urmia Lake.
The explorers could find 3000 pieces of unique fossils of the Third Age, including 802 pieces of precious fossils of vertebrates and a full skull belonging to specific samples of mammals.
Maragheh fossils, then, were taken to the United States prior to the 1979 Islamic Revolution for academic studies and maintained in Harvard University to be studied and return home within 6 to 12 months.
The long-term Iran-US dispute on unearthing, collecting and coding the samples of fossils led to the initiation of a complaint at the International Court of Justice in The Hague which ensued a very complicated, tough, legal process, but fortunately had a happy ending.
Accordingly, with efforts and legal pursuits of Public Relations of Iran Presidential Office, especially in the last 2 years, a consignment containing more than 3000 unique fossils of the Third Age finally moved to Amsterdam on January 24, with all expenses covered by the US, and after reviewing the package, was delivered to Iran.
