DUBAI: Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, unveiled a 3D printed replica of 1800-year-old Palmyra's Arch of Triumph during the World Government Summit in Dubai on Sunday.

The Daesh militant group in Syria destroyed the ancient arch.

The Arch of Triumph in Palmyra formed part of one of the world's most extensive ancient archaeological sites.

Palmyra, the ancient city, a Unesco World Heritage Site, was among Syria's main tourist attractions before the civil war erupted in 2011.

Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs, Irina Bokova, Director General of UNESCO, and Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund were also present at the unveiling ceremony of the ancient Tadmur Gate artefact.
