To say 2017 has been an eventful year for news and world events would be a huge understatement.

In Myanmar's Rakhine state, the persecution of Muslim Rohingya turned into what the UN has called ethnic cleansing.

In April, opponents of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro took to the streets, demanding immediate elections, blaming him for acute shortages and the world's highest inflation.

Carles Puigdemont, the former president of the Catalan regional government, was forced out of his job by the Spanish government for holding a referendum on secession that Spain had ruled was illegal.

And on June 5 in Qatar, nationals and residents woke up to the news that Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt had cut off diplomatic and economic ties with the country.

Talk to Al Jazeera covered these events through in-depth interviews with key figures. We look back on some of the most memorable interviews of 2017, and follow up with the correspondents who conducted them.
