French FM’s Talks in Tehran Make Headlines on March 6

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Tuesday, March 6, and picked headlines from 20 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story in all papers today was the visit of French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian to Tehran and his meetings with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, and the Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani.

The majority of headlines praised the decisive response given by the government to the French top diplomat. The harsh criticisms raised by Shamkhani, and the comments made by Rouhani about the dire consequences of the breakup of the Iran nuclear deal received particular attention.

Also a top story was an exhibition of Louve Museum’s items in Tehran, which was opened by Le Drian on Monday afternoon.

The above issues, as well as many more, are highlighted in the following headlines and top stories:
