THE WORLD THIS WEEK - Friday, July, 9th (part 2)

A good old fashioned spy swap, Israel’s prime minister plays good cop in Washington and New York, and infighting within the French government over who does the talking with Paris’ former African colonies… it’s all in The World This Week. François Picard welcomes Eric Pfanner of the International Herald Tribune, Paul Taylor of the Reuters news agency, Dave Clark of Agence France-Presse and Samir Aita of the Arabic-language edition of Le Monde Diplomatique.

A programme produced by Mounia Ben Aïssa and François Picard
