West Germany Wants Full Israeli Participation in UNESCO

UNESCO Secretary General Amadou M’Bow conferred here today with Chancellor Helmut Schmidt and also met Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher. Both Schmidt and Genscher left M’Bow in no doubt that the West German government and public want full Israeli participation in UNESCO. Genscher said Bonn was concerned about the UNESCO resolutions last November affecting Israel. He advocated that Israel remain in the European regional group. Last month, nearly 500 West German university professors signed a resolution protesting against UNESCO’s action.
