The cultural arm of The United Nations has accepted Palestine as a fully fledged member. It’s the first time Palestinians have achieved full status to a UN body. But UNESCO could pay for its decision with a major cut in funding. RT’s Daniel Bushell reports.
Palestine has, for the first time ever, received recognition by a UN body – its cultural arm has accepted it as a fully-fledged member. But this decision comes at a price for UNESCO – with the U.S. cutting its funding to the organisation, which represents almost a quarter of its budget. Ramzy Baroud, editor at the http://palestinechronicle.com , thinks Washington’s move is unfair, but says UNESCO will survive.
