Present in Sfantu Gheorghe, where he visited the National Eastern Carpathians Museum, Vasile Timis stated that the Culture Ministry was continuing its efforts to include on the UNESCO list as many objects, sites and monuments from the national, material and abstract, heritage, as possible, adding, in this context, that the national “doina” (folk chant) had been added to the list in 2009, followed by the Sucevita Monastery, last year, and an application for the Cucuteni pottery, filed this year. “We also mean to include the Romanian Christmas carol on the UNESCO heritage list,” Timis argued.
