Int’l cooperation vital to preservation of Cambodia’s famed Angkor

PHNOM PENH, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) — International cooperation is crucial to helping safeguard and develop the Historic Site of Angkor, a world heritage site in Cambodia’s northwestern Siem Reap Province, a spokesman for Angkor protection authority said on Saturday.

Angkor, the most popular tourist destination in Cambodia, was inscribed on the World Heritage List of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1992.

A year later, the International Coordinating Committee for the Safeguarding and Development of the Historic Site of Angkor (ICC-Angkor) was established to coordinate all foreign assistance for preserving and developing the ancient site.
