Several papers today covered the visit of Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, to Tehran International Book Fair, and his criticism of the ministries of culture and trade over the hiking price of paper.
Also a top story was the strong opposition of Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani and IRGC Quds Force Commander Major General Qassem Soleimani to the idea of holding bilateral talks with the US. Larijani called it a strategic mistake, and General Soleimani described it as an instance of submission under the current circumstances.
