Diplomatic Avenue: UK ambassador to UN talks efforts to pass Yemen resolution
Saturday, 1 December 2018
The UK's ambasador to the UN Karen Pierce said that representatives in the Seucity Council were united in creating a resolution that implements their five requests with regards to Yemen. She said the resolution should come out “very soon”, probably before the Sweden talks.
She added that it is becoming very difficult for supplies to reach the Yemeni people, which this resolution will focus on, as well as a cessation of hostilities in Hodeidah.
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.
