This month’s Diplomatic Avenue hosts ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda talking for the first time about the Palestinian application to join the court and the details of the process. The episode also included interviews with Jordan’s Representative to the U.N. Dina Kawar Dina Kawar and Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the U.N. Abdullah Al-Moallimi
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.
