Kohinoor Britain: India’s Kohinoor is with Britain, which has been trying to bring it back for a long time. Now, in this matter, a committee of the Parliament has told the government that after the year 1849, any special agreement to bring back or bring back the Kohinoor diamond, which was taken from India by the British rule, the country should not follow the UNESCO treaty of 1970. No provision prevents.
The committee said that India could enter into special agreements with the countries party to the treaty, to develop a mechanism for the return of antiquities taken or stolen from India before the treaty.
The parliamentary committee said this when the Ministry of Culture told it that the Kohinoor diamond was taken to Britain in the year 1970 before the UNESCO treaty came into force. In such a situation, there is no basis in international law to bring it back. Also The only way is to explore the possibilities of negotiation or agreement with the country concerned.
