Saturday, 26 November 2016
Al Arabiya News Channel’s New York and UN Bureau Chief Talal al-Haj interviews foreign policy columnist and New York University Professor James Traub and UN Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information Cristina Gallach on how newly elected US President Donald Trump and UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres will fare in their new roles.
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.
