The US authorities intend to announce the withdrawal from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in the coming days. This is reported by Reuters, referring to diplomatic sources.


"This is not an official statement, but it's right," the source said.


Foreign Polic reports that the decision to withdraw from UNESCO was made in order to save money by the American authorities against anti-Israeli bias that exists within the organization.


In 2011, the United States refused to participate in UNESCO funding after Palestine became its full member.
