The "rights and dignity" of Palestinians will only be realized when the world "wakes up" to the need for a lasting political solution.

That's according to the Commissioner General of the UN Relief Agency for Palestine Refugees, UNRWA, Pierre Krähenbühl.

He was speaking at the end of the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul earlier this week.

He said he was "deeply proud" of UNRWA's work, especially given the huge challenges posed by war in Syria and the on-going refugee crisis.

He spoke to Reem Abaza.
