Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday and picked headlines from 24 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers on Sunday covered the developments of Friday and Saturday, which were holidays in Iran this week. They mainly focused on the speeches delivered by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, and President Hassan Rouhani at the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini in Tehran on the occasion of the anniversary of the death of the late founder of the Islamic Republic Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.

In his remarks, the Leader outlined the five principles of being a revolutionary, and stressed that following such principles is the only way to progress. Ayatollah Khamenei also discouraged any move which spoils the unity of the government and the Iranian nation.

The death of the legendary American boxer, Muhammad Ali, was also a top story in all papers today.

Iran’s national volleyball team managed to book their spot at the Rio 2016 Olympics for the first time in 52 years, which was also heavily covered.
