Audrey Azoulay, France's former culture minister and the country's Jewish runner for head of the United Nations' Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, secured on Friday her nomination to head the cultural agency.

The 45-year-old's nomination was confirmed in October by members of the agency's board, making her the organization's second woman director-general.

AFP reported Friday that Azoulay said she had "great faith" in UNESCO, which "bears the genuine power to transform the world."
