A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on Apr. 23

Iran Newspaper front pages

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

The majority of newspapers today covered the remarks made on Wednesday by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, against Saudi Arabia and the United States.
They also covered President Hassan Rouhani’s comments on a recent plan by the Iranian police to utilize 7,000 plainclothes police and auxiliaries for “moral security”.
Foreign policy was another prominent topic, with headlines about Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s meeting with his US counterpart John Kerry in New York, as well as on another meeting in the Austrian capital of Vienna on the implementation of the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers (JCPOA).
There were also numerous articles on a recent US court ruling to seize Iran’s assets and the reactions by the Iranian foreign ministry, as well as lots of commentary on US President Barack Obama’s state visit to Saudi Arabia, where he urged Arab monarchies to avoid conflict with Iran.
