A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on November 19

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Monday, December 17, 2018, and picked headlines from 17 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story in most newspapers today was various economic issues, from the high prices of consumer goods despite the recent decrease in foreign currency rates to the government’s budget bill for the next fiscal year.

Several papers also covered a deal between nearly 200 countries to keep the Paris Climate Agreement alive by adopting a detailed set of rules to implement the pact.

Turkey’s vow to resume its cooperation with the government of Bashar al-Assad in case he wins a “free” election in the Arab country also received great coverage.

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