Cambodia said yesterday that Thailand failed all of its efforts to derail the Preah Vihear’s management plan since the World Heritage Committee’s decision to delay consideration of the plan’s documents would never impede the implementation of temple conservation.

There is no requirement that the Committee approves the plan because the role of the World Heritage Committee is not to approve or disapprove any progress report or Management Plan submitted by a state party, but to review those documents in order to take note, said a statement from Cambodia’s Office of the Council of Ministers.

“The conservation work is too important to be delayed,” it said.

Cambodia also released yesterday a summary of the result of the 34th World Heritage Committee meeting to show that the committee has recognised its reports on the management plan and its progress.
