"De cara al mundo", the Onda Madrid programme directed and presented by Javier Fernández Arribas, director of Atalayar, tackles the current affairs of the world every week. 

Thousands of Iranians bid farewell to the late President Ebrahim Raisi in the streets of Tehran. The version of the crash of the old helicopter in which he was travelling is mixed with great disbelief over this option while expectations remain high over who may now succeed the top leader of the Revolution, Ali Khamenei.

Meanwhile, Israel has responded by recalling its ambassadors to Spain, Ireland and Norway following the announcement that these countries will recognise the Palestinian state on 28 May. The United States and major European countries agree that now is not the time to take this decision, which Hamas welcomes. Moreover, Israel has shown the video of the young female soldiers kidnapped and mistreated by Hamas and there is controversy. 

On the other hand, the war in Ukraine continues with alarm in the Baltic states over Russia's intentions to extend its river borders in the Gulf of Finland. 

Also, the Spanish Human Rights Observatory (ODHE) is organising a seminar in Malaga on AI and human rights on the occasion of the presentation of its Catalejo Awards. Mario Rigau, president of the ODHE, will be in the microphones of "De cara al mundo" to talk about the event. 

The journalist and correspondent in Ukraine María Senovilla and the expert international analyst Lucas Martín will analyse the most important issues in international current affairs. 

As every day, the discussion will be led by Atalayar's regular contributors, Claudia Luna, Mexican journalist and writer, and Pedro González, journalist and founder of Euronews, coordinated by Javier Fernández Arribas. They will discuss the crisis in the Middle East with the Gaza war between Israel and Hamas and the diplomatic crisis between several countries and Israel over the recognition of the Palestinian state, the future of Iran after the death of President Ebrahim Raisi, the elections to the European Parliament, and the controversy between Russia and the Baltic countries over river borders while the war in Ukraine rages.

"De cara al mundo", Friday 24 May from 10.05pm to 11pm.
