As far as we move forward, the number of participating people, NGOs, and organizations active in this area is getting more and more. This is an exceptional and good opportunity; however, the role of the broadcast network, including the radio stations, television stations, the press and the sites which are active in this area, can be very constructive  in this regard.’’

He added, "We need to increase the investments in the field of education. we should help people -especially the young geberation- become reconciled to museums! Regarding the memorandum of understanding with the Ministry of Education at the national level, we have to perform widespread activities to provide the adequate context for people to visit museums throughout the year not during the weeks of cultural heritage.

Zakavotmad, a cultural heritage expert, said that during the demolitions in the historical hill of Gaz due to the development plan of Imamzadeh ShahNematollah, a Parthian era jar burial was explored. All the evidences showed that this jar burial belonged to the Parthian era because after the Parthian dynasty the burial method was changed and nobody buried in the jar!
