A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on June 7

Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Tuesday and picked headlines from 22 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Many newspapers on Tuesday covered a visit by Imam Khomeini’s grandson Seyyed Hassan Khomeini to the Foreign Ministry, and his remarks in praise of Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

The controversies regarding master musician Mohammad Reza Shajarian and the efforts to bring him back also remain a top story in Iranian media. His new album has recently obtained a licence for release, and IRIB has yet to announce whether his Rabbana will be aired during Ramadan or not. Conservatives, however, are slamming the government and reformists for focusing on the Iranian singer, who is believed by hardliners to be an opposition figure.

Newspapers also paid great attention to the Interior Minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli’s address to the Parliament, in which he briefed the MPs on the latest worrying statistics regarding social ills.
