Thursday, 27 September 2018
Alistair Burt, the UK’s minister of state for the Middle East talks to Al Arabiya’s New York Bureau Chief Talal al-Haj about the situation in Yemen, and if Martin Griffiths will be able to succeed in reaching a solution to end the conflict, especially with the low cooperation from the Houthi militias.
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.
