Ambassador Hassassian at the BBCJune 19, 2017, midnight
Last week H. E. Manuel Hassassian was invited to the Broadcasting House by James Harding, Director of News and Current Affairs at the BBC to meet with him and the senior editors and controllers of their flagship news programmes, including the Today Programme and BBC World.
Ambassador Hassassian discussed the issues of the day and the general situation in Palestine and was quizzed by top editors on specific issues. Also BBC coverage of Palestine Israel was discussed productively and in some detail.
The meeting will hopefully help and foster a better working relation between the Palestinian Mission in the UK and the Britain’s internationally respected public broadcaster.
