A look at Iranian newspaper front pages on Feb 14

Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iran newspapers on Sunday and picked headlines from 21 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Iran has sent 4 million barrels of its oil to Europe. This was the first move by the country to show the world that it is serious about increasing its crude oil exports by at least a million barrels per day within a short period after the removal of sanctions. Aside from that, there is much excitement in political circles about the list of candidates for the Parliamentary and Assembly of Experts elections in late February. Each political faction releases the names of their favoured candidates and tensions are running high between leaders of the parties in trying to convey the merits of their choices to the nation. The Munich accord, bringing rising hope for the restoration of peace in war-torn Syria, was also commented upon by Iranian papers on February 14, 2016.
