In Brief: Thai nationalists rally in Bangkok

About 30 protesters rallied in Bangkok on Monday to call for the government to formally back away from a June 2008 joint Thai-Cambodian statement supporting Cambodia's unilateral listing of Preah Vihear temple as a UNESCO World Heritage site, according to Thai media reports. The group, led by the academic Walwipa Jaroonroj, said the government should revoke the statement and formally inform UNESCO. Cambodia's Foreign Ministry spokesman Koy Kuong said the action "will not impact anything", since Preah Vihear temple has already been listed by UNESCO.
