Diplomatic Avenue opens talk on the situations in Syria, Libya and Ukraine
Friday, 27 June 2014
This month's Diplomatic Avenue features interviews with Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Iyad Ameen Madani to discuss the situations in Iraq, Syria, Palestine and other regions. It also features interviews with U.N. humanitarian chief Valerie Amos, Ukraine’s U.N. Ambassador Yuriy Sergeyev and Libya's permanent U.N. representative Ibrahim Al Dabash who will discuss the recent general elections in the country.
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.
