A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on September 29

Iran Newspaper front pages

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

Newspapers on Thursday covered the remarks made by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei during the graduation ceremony of cadets in Tehran. The Leader underlined the need for constant enhancement of the country’s defensive power, and expressed optimism about the future of Iran.

Another top story today was the death of Shimon Peres, the former Prime Minister of Israel and a founding member of the Zionist regime. Many newspapers in Iran covered his death by calling him the ‘executioner of Qana’ (a camp in Lebanon).

The remarks made by President Hassan Rouhani in the massive gathering of people in Qazvin also received great coverage. President Rouhani highlighted the achievements of his government, particularly the country’s economic situation in spite of declining oil prices, and criticized the opponents for not appreciating the efforts.

The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) summit in Algiers was also a top story. Oil ministers in this meeting decided to freeze their oil output increase, but they accepted that Iran be exempted from the plan.
