The artifacts were allegedly stolen from one of the state museums of Syria.

The deal’s estimated costs is about $2 millions.

Negotiations faced major challenges through reluctance of Abu Khalif to leave the country caused by fear of his life.

The artifacts owner stands ready to reduce the price by $500 thousand in a case of bargain implementation in Syria.
