The White House on Monday said UNESCO's admission of the Palestinians, as a full member was "premature" and undermined international peace efforts.

"Today's vote at UNESCO to admit the Palestinian Authority is premature and undermines the international community's shared goal of a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East," said White House spokesman Jay Carney.
