A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on August 10

Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday and picked headlines from 22 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Wednesday newspapers covered the remarks made by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with Iran’s Intelligence Ministry officials in Tehran.

The first phone call between Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and British Prime Minister Theresa May was also a top story.

The papers also covered the historic meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Saint Petersburg. It was the first meeting of the two after the Turkey coup and the tensions between Ankara and Moscow, and is regarded as a turnaround in Erdogan’s stances.

These issues as well as many more are highlighted in the following headlines:
