A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on June 22

Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday and picked headlines from 25 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers on Wednesday covered the remarks made by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with a group of poets. The headline mostly used by papers today was about the Leader’s call for poets to focus on US breaches of the JCPOA in their poems.

Another major story was the historic decrease of the headline inflation rate to a one-digit figure for the first time in more than 26 years.

The ongoing reactions to Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s decision to replace his deputy, and also the issue of astronomical salaries both remain top stories.
