This week’s Diplomatic Avenue hosts the Saudi ambassador to the U.N. Abdullah al-Moalami; U.N. Deputy Secretary General Jan Elliason; Assistant Secretary General and special SG advisor on Yemen Jamal Ben Omar; Jordan Permanent Rep. to the U.N. Prince Zeid Bin Raad Al Hussein; UK Permanent Rep. to the U.N. Sir Mark Layall Grant; and Luis Morino Ocampo, Lecturer in International law at Yale and New York universities and the previous prosecutor of the International Criminal Court.
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.
