Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai has been speaking to the media after she was shot in the head by the Taliban a year ago this week for championing education and the rights of women in her home country.

In the week of the first anniversary of the attack that sparked outrage in Pakistan and around the world, Yousafzai told the BBC that in order to achieve peace the “best way to solve problems and to fight against war is through dialogue,” adding “That’s not an issue for me, that’s the job of the government … and that’s also the job of America.”

The full interview with the 16-year-old will be shown in the U.K. on Monday night on BBC’s “Panorama” program.

Diane Sawyer’s interview with Yousafzai is being shown Monday on ABC’s “Good Morning America'” show and on “World News with Diane Sawyer.”

On Sunday, CNN will air Christiane Amanpour’s interview with Yousafzai in a special report called “The Bravest Girl in the World.”
