Diplomatic Avenue: UN aid Chief recalls achievements, regrets in Yemen, Syria
Friday, 25 August 2017
Now that the United Nation’s aid chief, Stephen O’Brien, is leaving his position after two and a half years as undersecretary general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief, Al Arabiya New York bureau chief Talal Alhaj asked him if he feels he is leaving the world a better place.
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.
