British Prime Minister Tony Blair, chief supporter of President Bush's push for military action in Iraq, will field questions from an international audience of young people as part of an upcoming MTV special.
MTV Networks Europe will produce the special, titled "An MTV Forum With Tony Blair: Is War the Answer?" It is scheduled to begin airing on MTV channels in Australia, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and the United States starting March 7.
Blair is expected to field questions from 40 young people hailing from Europe, the Middle East and the United States during the hour-long program. The forum will likely follow the same format and tone as last year's "Be Heard: An MTV Global Discussion With Colin Powell," in which young people from around the world spoke with U.S. Secretary of State Powell about the threat of terrorism and the United States' military action in Afghanistan.
