Israel may reconsider UNESCO exit: ambassadorIsrael’s ambassador to UNESCO said Tuesday he was urging his government to reconsider its decision to quit the UN cultural body, saying it had halted its “anti-Israeli resolutions” over the past year. Israel and the United States both announced on October 12 that they would leave the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization over resolutions critical of the Jewish state. “What I’m going to recommend to my ministry and my government is at least to reconsider our decision,” Shama-Hacohen told journalists by telephone.
