IFLA Condemns U.S.' and Israel's Withdrawal From UNESCO

The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) released a statement on the U.S. and Israeli governments’ decisions to leave UNESCO, saying, in part:

IFLA, as a global network, is built on the basis that our institutions, and our activities, gain from discussion, and cooperation, across borders. We advance faster and in a more sustainable way towards these objectives—as institutions and as societies—when we do it together.
IFLA, as the global voice of libraries, therefore affirms the value of UNESCO as a global intergovernmental organisation in the field of education, science and culture, working with libraries to achieve our common goals.

For more information, read the press release.
