Baku: China's Migratory Bird Sanctuaries along the coast of the Yellow Sea-Bohai Gulf were inscribed on the World Heritage List as a natural site on Friday at the ongoing 43rd session of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee here.

The decision to inscribe the Chinese natural site on the List was unanimously supported by all members of the Committee, reports Xinhua news agency.
