Iran Newspaper front pages

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

A recent meeting between the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei and Ramadan Abdullah, the head of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement, and the Leader’s remarks on Iran’s continued support for Palestine and Hezbollah were widely covered by Iranian newspapers.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s comments in an address to workers on Labour Day also received great attention.

An ongoing visit to Tehran by South Korean President Park Geun-hye is also a hot topic among all Iranian media. Park’s visit is the first ever by a South Korean President since Tehran and Seoul commenced their ties in 1962.
