This week’s Diplomatic Avenue hosts Derek Plumbly, United Nations special coordinator for Lebanon, Richard Falk, United Nations special rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian territories and Najib al-Ghadban, Syria’s National Coalition representative to Washington and the United Nations.
Diplomatic Avenue is beamed live every month from Al Arabiya’s studios in the United Nations. Presented by Talal al-Haj, the show features interviews with high-level diplomats and decision makers, with video reports focusing on recent diplomatic developments and pressing issues. The program casts a critical eye over the work of the U.N. and its agencies, not only on the political front, but also on the humanitarian, cultural and scientific levels. The show gives its audience an insight into what goes on within the halls and corridors of the U.N., with a special emphasis on issues that matter to the Arab and Islamic worlds.
