MK Ilatov: UNESCO has lost its mandate and legitimacy

Yisrael Beiteinu faction head Robert Ilatov, who heads the Knesset subcommittee for foreign policy, said that the US withdrawal from UNESCO "sends a clear, sharp message to all those organizations which purport to be objective human rights organizations but in practise adopt a biased and one-sided stance against Israel and try to recreate history.

"With its ridiculous decisions, the UNESCO organization has violated the mandate it received as the educational, scientific and cultural arm of the UN and has become an irrelevant organization with no mandate of legitimacy. This noble decision is another proof of the indelible connection and partnership between the US and Israel."
