U.N. officials discuss Sustainable Development Goals
Friday, 25 September 2015
Al Arabiya’s ‘Diplomatic Avenue’ hosts a selection of top U.N. development officials to discuss sustainable development aimed at ending poverty around the world. On the sidelines of the ongoing U.N. Assembly meeting in New York, Al Arabiya’s Talal al-Haj speaks to: Amina J. Mohammed, U.N. Secretary-General’s Special Advisor on Post-2015 Development Planning; Helen Clark, U.N. development program administrator; and U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Raad al-Hussein.
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.
