IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Thursday, April 18, 2019, and picked headlines from 14 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.
The top story in today’s newspapers was the meeting of Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, with commanders and personnel of the Iranian Army on the occasion of National Army Day. During the meeting, the Leader praised the Army’s efforts and services, particularly during the recent floods.
Also a top story was the visit of Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to Ankara, and his meetings with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.
A letter by Zarif to his world counterparts on the dangerous consequences of the US’ blacklisting of IRGC, and Instagram’s move to block the accounts of IRGC generals over the US ban also received great coverage.
