A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on August 3

Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday 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 Iranian newspapers was the recent remarks by President Hassan Rouhani in a live televised interview. Both reformist and conservative papers seemed to be criticizing the government. The reformists criticized that Rouhani had not been transparent enough, and refused to name the trouble-makers. Conservatives, on the other hand, highlighted Rouhani’s unrealized promises.

The developments in the United Nations over adding or removing Saudi Arabia to/from the black list of child killers also received great coverage.

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