Each State Party to this Convention recognizes that the duty of ensuring the identification, protection, conservation, presentation and transmission to future generations of the cultural and natural heritage referred to in Articles 1 and 2 and situated on its territory, belongs primarily to that State. It will do all it can to this end, to the utmost of its own resources and, where appropriate, with any international assistance and co-operation, in particular, financial, artistic, scientific and technical, which it may be able to obtain.
Whilst fully respecting the sovereignty of the States on whose territory the cultural and natural heritage mentioned in Articles 1 and 2 is situated, and without prejudice to property right provided by national legislation, the States Parties to this Convention recognize that such heritage constitutes a world heritage for whose protection it is the duty of the international community as a whole to co-operate.

Now there was a freak incident here with the National Security Agency I think it was in Transylvania County, but apparently one day somer representative from the NSA showed up at the County Seat there and told them that they were abandoning their facilities there and were giving them tot he county. The county and everybody around here basicly jaw dropped and said, "What Facilities!?"
When they went there to have a look, there was a HUGE underground network of rooms and offices with miles of tunnels, and oddly enough they said miles and miles of fiber optic cable and some generators, had been there for years and nobody in the county or local communtiy ever had a clue it was there. I'll see if I can't dig that up for you, it was big news here.
Some interesting stuff going on here in the hills.
