Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Tuesday and picked headlines from 18 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Many newspapers on Tuesday covered Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani’s remarks against the critics of the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, a warning by 103 Iranian lawmakers to the president on the nuclear deal, and the ongoing debate over controversial plan to transfer water from the Caspian Sea to deserts in central Iran.

Another story was about the statements by Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari on the recent US seizure of Iran’s assets and the legal actions being taken to retrieve the money.
