The State Department said Washington will not make a $60 million November payment to UNESCO because of a longstanding U.S. law that prohibits American support for any U.N.-affiliated body that accepts Palestinian membership.
Washington currently is UNESCO's biggest funding source, supplying 22 percent of the agency's budget.
