Regev:UNESCO lost its historic role

Culture Minister Miri Regev sent a letter to Prime Minister Netanyahu in the wake of the US decision to withdraw from UNESCO.

Regev wrote that "In my opinion the UN and UNESCO have lost their historic role and from the moment they violated their principles, they lost their public and international legitimacy. These decisions and others referring to Israel are tainted with biases and lack objectivity, pandering to the interests of certain states at the expense of ignoring important chapters in human history."
