Washington:  The United States announced Thursday that it is to withdraw from the United Nations Scientific and Cultural Organization, accusing the body of “anti-Israel bias.”

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Washington would establish an “observer mission” to replace its representation at the Paris-based agency.

The head of UNESCO Irina Bokova voiced “profound regret” over the decision by the United States calling it a “loss to multilateralism”.

“I wish to express profound regret at the decision of the United States of America to withdraw from UNESCO,” Bokova said in a statement.
