 (Xinhua) -- Egypt will receive artifacts that were seized earlier in the Italian city of Naples, Egyptian Antiquities Minister Khaled al-Anani said yesterday.

During a cabinet meeting, Anani said the Egyptian artifacts will be returned to Cairo within a few days.

According to the minister, 975 artifacts from more than 10 countries have been restored between March 2016 and May 2018.

Egypt, one of the most ancient civilizations, has been working effortlessly to preserve and retrieve its rich archaeological treasures and historical heritage, which will also boost the once-flourishing tourism industry affected by the political turmoil over the past five years.
