Israel gives notice of withdrawal from United Nations cultural agency

Israel gives notice of withdrawal from United Nations cultural agency Israel gives notice of withdrawal from United Nations cultural agency
Patty Aguilar | 31 December, 2017, 00:54

Azoulay said in a statement on Friday she deeply regretted the withdrawal, which is set to take effect on December 31 2018.

Israel has formally notified the United Nations' culture and education body of its withdrawal from the organisation, two months after it announced it would follow the USA by walking out over resolutions critical of the Jewish state.

Tensions had been bubbling since Unesco controversially admitted Palestine as a member state in 2011, a move opposed by the U.S. and Israel, which argue that any recognition of Palestinian statehood must await a negotiated Middle East peace deal.

Israel joins the United States, which submitted its own withdrawal from UNESCO in October, citing the organization's severe anti-Israel bias and its need for reform.

Both Israel and the United States - which filed its own withdrawal notice in October, noting that it would instead seek to establish a permanent observer mission to UNESCO - will officially cease membership as of December 31, 2018. 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.

UNESCO is best known for its work to preserve heritage, including maintaining a list of World Heritage sites, and programmes to promote education in developing countries.

Many Israeli's viewed recent resolutions by the organization as diminishing Jewish ties to Jerusalem and the biblical city of Hebron.

Such disagreements were best dealt with from "inside UNESCO and not outside it", Azoulay said.

"I regret this deeply", she said.
