The latest Middle East Analysis podcast from the Bishops’ Conference, sees a welcome return to studio duties for Dr Harry Hagopian – the Bishops’ consultant on matters relating to the Middle East North North Africa (MENA) region.
After a two-month Summer hiatus, there was much to talk about when he popped into the studio with James Abbott. Rather than pursuing the futile task of trying to catch up with eight weeks’ worth of events in a region racked by explosions of violence, tension and uncertainty, they focused on three things:
- The US-Russian brokered ceasefire in Syria
- The UN Summit for Refugees and Migrants held in New York on Monday 19 September 2016
- World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel #DismantlingBarriers
