Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday and picked headlines from 23 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers on Wednesday covered the US presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Almost all newspapers dedicated part of their front pages to the debate, covering different points mentioned in the session, particularly their talks about Iran and the nuclear deal.

A letter by ex-president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei also received great coverage. Ahmadinejad in his letter announced that he will do as Ayatollah Khamenei advised him to and will not run for the next year’s presidential elections.

The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) summit in Algeria and the remarks made by Iran’s Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh about the oil freeze plan was also a top story today.
