Cabinet gives go ahead for gold reserves to be viewed

Wahed Omer the president’s public relations adviser, says that based on a cabinet decision members of the National Assembly, civil society and the media will be invited to visit the country’s gold reserves, including the Bactrian treasures.

“These treasures have been preserved through the ups and downs of history, and it’s time for our people to be assured about the preservation of those treasures.

“Work is underway” regarding the proposed visits, he wrote on Twitter.

This comes after concerns were raised recently about the safety of the Bactrian treasure with a number of MPs calling for it to be shipped and stored abroad for safekeeping.
