How’s that for turnaround time? — US cuts off funding for UNESCO





Update: Check out this must see video of the AP’s Matt Lee grilling State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland over the US UNESCO vote. Sami Kishawi has a full transcript on his blog Sixteen Minutes to Palestine.


The Obama administration has decided to cut off funding for UNESCO because it approved a Palestinian bid for full membership.

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland says Monday’s vote triggers a long-standing congressional restriction on funding to UN bodies that recognize Palestine as a state before an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal is reached . . .

Nuland went on to say the U.S. would refrain from making a $60 million payment it planned to make in November.

But she said the U.S. would maintain membership in the body.
