A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on December 14

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

The majority of newspapers today covered the remarks made by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in the religious coming of age ceremony for hundreds of Iranian teenagers.

The separate orders given by President Hassan Rouhani to Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi were also widely covered. Rouhani’s orders were issued in reaction to the US violation of nuclear deal with Tehran.

The economic contracts between Iran and Russia, particularly those in the field of energy, were also a top story today.

The liberation of Syrian city of Aleppo and the increase in Iranian women’s political activities were among other top stories.

The above issues, as well as many more, are highlighted in the following headlines:
