WASHINGTON - UNESCO's vote on Monday to grant Palestinians full membership is "deeply damaging" to the UN cultural agency and can't replace peace talks with Israel, the US ambassador to the United Nations said.

"Today's vote to grant Palestinian membership in UNESCO is no substitute for direct negotiations, but it is deeply damaging to UNESCO," Ambassador Susan Rice said in a message posted on Twitter.
