I have also been waiting for the documents! Haha! But I realized this year's session starts later than last year's.

PS. Thanks Els for confirming the release date.

Interesting to see that these 2 recommendations have leaked out of Korea & Japan, while I cannot find anything about the other possible WHS. They all must have received their verdicts at the same time?

Thank you for these early (or "leaked") updates! Looking forward to seeing the actual feedback of ICOMOS/IUCN on the sites.

Just additional articles about the nominated sites from Japan and Korea:

Seowon: http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/opinion/2019/05/202_268872.html

Mozu-Furuichi Tombs: https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2019/05/14/national/unesco-panel-recommends-adding-japans-mozu-furuichi-tombs-world-heritage-list/#.XNzVxI4zaUk

This goes to show how the governments of Japan and Korea really take the process and inscription seriously, and their media follow.

(thanks to Christian for alerting me by e-mail; unfortunately I have to close forum access to allow him to tell it himself to for the remainder of the day as I will be off-line on a flight to Johannesburg)

We will find out in a couple of days but. in the mean time the following report from 12 April 2019 would seem to indicate the Myanmar isn't entirely confident about Bagan!!
"The Ministry of Religious Affairs and Culture on Friday called on foreign diplomats to encourage members of the World Heritage Committee to grant World Heritage status to Bagan when the committee meets in June."
and
"U Kyaw Oo Lwin, director general of the Department of Archaeology and National Museum said on Friday that China and Australia are close friends of Myanmar and their support at the conference would be helpful for Bagan. "I would like to request that you support [our application] for the World Heritage list," he said at the event in Yangon."

None of this should be necessary of course if ICOMOS has recommended inscription
