The UN cultural agency Sunday designated a number of sites representative of Japan's industrial revolution under Emperor Meiji (1868-1910) as World Heritage sites.

UNESCO conferred the status on the iron and steel, shipbuilding and coal mining sites. The Japanese bid to have them listed had touched off a diplomatic spat because South Korea and China say that seven of the sites became centres for deportation and forced labour during their respective Japanese occupations.
