Iran Newspaper front pages

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

Newspapers on Monday covered the recent controversy over the remarks by a so-called strategist and political scientist, Hassan Abbasi, who had criticized the Iranian Army’s indifference to the country’s incidents. The remarks were strongly slammed by the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps and many other bodies and figures, who described such comments as being aimed at causing rift between the Armed Forces.

The papers also highlighted the statements made by the Secretary of Iran’s Guardian Council Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, who admitted to the Council’s mistakes during the recent elections, and also criticized the moves by certain candidates to buy votes.

The European Union’s support for Iran’s accession to the World Trade Organization was also a top story.
