World leaders have been heading this week to New York for the 73rd United Nations General Assembly. Al Arabiya News Channel’s UN Bureau Chief Talal Al-Haj met with UNGA President Maria Fernanda Espinosa to discuss ambitious program of this year’s session, which includes gender equality, migration and refugees, climate action and the revitalization of the UN.
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.
