Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday and picked headlines from 21 them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers today marked the first anniversary of the implementation of Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, by covering the remarks made by various Iranian officials.

They also continued covering the demise of Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, the former president of Iran and the Chairman of Expediency Council, and highlighted the ceremonies held across the country to commemorate him.

The remarks made by Vice-Speaker of Iran’s Parliament Ali Motahari about citizens’ rights and freedom of speech also received great coverage.
