Baud Barakat, permanent representative of the PLO in Geneva, told correspondents here that UNESCO, based in Paris, has signed a contract with the PLO by which UNESCO will participate financially in a PLO film project. UNESCO sources have confirmed the agreement.

The project consists of a series of educational films to be produced by the PLO to be screened in Egypt, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon for the benefit of the Arab population living in Israel and the occupied territories.

The project will cost $45,480 of which UNESCO will pay $7200. The balance will be paid by the Arab Fund for Social and Economical Development in Kuwait.
