The UAE and Iraq have launched a collaboration to reconstruct Mosul's Great Mosque of Al Nuri and its iconic leaning minaret, ravaged last year during battles to retake the city from Daesh.
During the ceremony at Baghdad's National Museum, UAE Culture Minister Noura al Kaabi said her country would contribute $50.4 million for the project.
The first year of work will focus on documenting and clearing the site, UNESCO said.
The following four years will be focused on the restoration and "faithful reconstruction" of the mosque, its minaret as well as the city's historic gardens and open spaces.
