US drops out of Unesco over arrears, 'anti-Israel bias'

US Plans To Withdraw From 'Anti-Israel' UNESCO

The United States Thursday, announced that it is to withdraw from the United Nations Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), accusing the body of "anti-Israel bias".

The director of UNESCO is expressing "profound regret" at the USA government's decision to pull out of the United Nations cultural agency because of what's seen as longstanding anti-Israel bias.

This decision was not taken lightly, and reflects USA concerns with mounting arrears at UNESCO, the need for fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing anti-Israel bias at UNESCO.

While the United States withdrew from the group, the Trump administration said it wanted to continue to be engaged with Unesco to provide American perspective and expertise, but as a nonmember observer.

According to AP, Washington made the move due to "tensions over Palestine, specifically because of a resolution adopted by UNESCO, which Washington sees as being anti-Israeli". The U.S. will seek to have a "permanent observer" status instead.

U.S. has stopped funding the UNESCO over issues related to Palestine in 2011.
