Decision : CONF 003 XII.47
Consideration of Nominations to the World Heritage List

The Committee decided furthermore to defer the following sites:

No. Name of property / State Party

8 Ichkeul National park / Tunisia

The Committee deferred this nomination until the Tunisian Government has contacted the other States concerned to ensure adequate protection of summering and wintering areas of major migratory species found in Ichkeul.

79 Paphos, Birthplace of Aphrodite / Cyprus

The Committee deferred this nomination until more precise information was available on the possible adverse impact on the sites of the pressing needs of tourism development.

92 Sta. Giulia/St. Salvator's Monastery / Italy

The Committee heard the comments of ICOMOS which referred to the outstanding universal value of the property. However, ICOMOS was concerned by the fact that the property had not been presented in the more general context of the cultural heritage of the country as a whole. While recognizing the value of the site nominated, the Committee decided to defer a decision until indications had been received from the Italian Government on the properties situated in Italy which it was considering nominating to the List.
