Qatari candidate for UNESCO did not represent Arabs interests, talk show host

Sat, Oct. 14, 2017
CAIRO – 14 October 2017: The Qatari candidate for latest UNESCO elections Hamad bin Abdulaziz Al-Kawari did not represent Arabian interests in the region, instead, favored Persian and Turkish ones, said Egyptian Talk Show host Amr adeeb on Saturday.

Adeeb added that the rich-gas emirate of Qatar did not provide the Arab World with any significant services, nor sacrifices that would elevate the region’s prosperity, during its short history, noting that the tiny Emirate chose to have its interest met with the Persian and Turkish policies.

Adeeb stressed that it is hard to support the emirate in the international events, noting that Qatar funded extremist groups that have troubled the region’s stability, such as the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood.

The United Nations' cultural agency (UNESCO) has selected France's Audrey Azoulay as its new director general on Friday, after securing more votes -including Egyptian- than the Qatari candidate Al- Kawari.
