US to withdraw from UNESCO

The US State Department confirmed the country is officially withdrawing from UNESCO, the UN’s cultural body it helped found back in 1945. The move is to take effect on December 31, Washington announced.

“This decision was not taken lightly, and reflects US concerns with mounting arrears at UNESCO, the need for fundamental reform in the organization, and continuing anti-Israel bias at UNESCO,” the State Department said in a Thursday statement cited by Reuters.
