Speaking to Al Arabiya’s “Diplomatic Avenue,” Adama Dieng, Special Adviser of the Secretary-General on the Prevention of Genocide, urged for global assistance for Syrian refugees. Meanwhile, U.N.'s Special Coordinator on Lebanon Sigrid Kaag said syrian refugee children are victims of child labor and early marriage.
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.
