Diplomatic Avenue: Commissioner-General of UNRWA talks funds cuts and political solutions
Friday, 28 September 2018
Pierre Kraehenbuehl, Commissioner-General of UNRWA, talks to Al Arabiya’s New York Bureau Chief Talal al-Haj about the unprecedented funding crisis mainly caused by the US dramatic cuts, the criticism around UNRWA’s work in Jordan, and the political solution considered “fit” for the Palestinian refugees.
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.
