U.S. Quits UNESCO Over ‘Anti-Israel Bias’

The United States says it’s pulling out of the UN’s cultural organisation (UNESCO), accusing it of “anti-Israel” bias.

The state department said it would establish an observer mission at the Paris-based organisation to replace its representation.

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.
