IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Monday, August 13, and picked headlines from 14 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.
The top story in all papers today was the landmark Convention signed by Iran, Russia, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, and Kazakhstan on the Legal Regime of the Caspian Sea.
Many papers covered the details of the agreement, and the ambiguities regarding Iran’s share of the world’s largest lake.
Also a top story was the beginning of the Judiciary’s swift prosecution of those involved in financial corruption.
The social media campaign #Where_Is_Your_Child, which challenges top officials to declare where their children are living and what they do, also received great coverage.
