Iranian newspapers on Wednesday focused on President Rouhani’s remarks on the country’s determination to reclaim its rights in the legal dispute with the US.

They also covered an interview with MP Gholam-Hossein Mesbahi Moqaddam, who has revealed a controversial nuclear report made by former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the Supreme Leader.

Another top story was about the statements made by Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Chief Ali Akbar Salehi, who said the country will proceed with caution in dealing with the US, particularly when it comes to selling heavy water to Washington.
