Just caught this from the Bangkok Post about Thailand's withdrawal from the World Heritage Convention:

"Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva has defended the decision to withdraw Thailand from Unesco's World Heritage Convention, saying its approval of Cambodia's management plan for Preah Vihear temple would put the country at a disadvantage."

 

Wow...so I wonder what are the implications, if any for Thailand's five existing UNESCO World Heritage Sites, like Sukhothai and so forth...?
