dnix writes: The United States is withdrawing from UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, effective 31 December said in an official notification the US Secretary of State, Mr Rex Tillerson. From the note: "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,”. Adding that the United States would seek to “remain engaged as a non-member observer state in order to contribute US views, perspectives and expertise.”. Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO express her profound regret at the decision.
