Israel recalls envoy after UNESCO vote

By Agencies in Jerusalem | China Daily | Updated: 2016-10-28 08:51

Israel recalled its ambassador to UNESCO for consultations on Wednesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced, after a second resolution accused of denying the Jewish connection to Jerusalem.

The UNESCO World Heritage Committee earlier adopted a resolution on the "Old City of Jerusalem and its Walls", saying it was "deeply concerned" by Israeli building works and archaeological excavations in the city.

The vote comes eight days after UNESCO's Executive Council backed a resolution on the same theme that infuriated Israel.
