A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on August 9

iranian newspapers

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday, August 9, and picked headlines from 13 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story today was the list of President Hassan Rouhani’s ministerial nominees, which was submitted to the Parliament for vote of confidence.

It seems that Rouhani’s list has not satisfied either his reformist supporters or his conservative opponents. His reformist supporters, particularly, believe that some of his ministers should have been replaced, and at least one female minister appointed.

The Iranian lawmakers’ controversial selfies with EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini also remained a top story, with the Parliament condemning the fuss made about it in Iranian media, the IRIB in particular.

Another top story was the remarks made by Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran (AEOI), in an interview with Lebanon’s Al Mayadeen TV about the US breach of nuclear deal and Iran’s possible reaction.

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