Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Saturday and picked headlines from 19 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Iranian press on Saturday covered the league (IPL) championship win by the unpretentious Esteghlal of Khuzestan, which left the popular giants of Tehran, Persepolis and Esteghlal of Tehran, ranking second and third.

Remarks by Ayatollah Akbar Hashehmi Rafsanjani in support of the nuclear deal [JCPOA] were also extensively discussed.

US attempts to encourage Europeans to increase trade with Tehran, as well as a growing rate of suicide in Iran have also remained hot topics.
