United States Pulls Out Of UNESCO

Published

on

The United States announced Thursday that it is to withdraw from the United Nations Scientific and Cultural Organization, accusing the body of “anti-Israel bias.”

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Washington would establish an “observer mission” to replace its representation at the Paris-based agency.

US withdrawal deals a further blow to an organization hobbled by regional rivalries and a lack of funds.

UNESCO said the withdrawal was a loss to the “UN family” and to multilateralism.

The agency is known for designating world heritage sites such as Syria’s Palmyra and the US Grand Canyon.
