Iran Newspaper front pages

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

It is still less than a month since international sanctions on Iran’s nuclear program were lifted prompting a rush of international business delegations to Iran and visits by Iranian officials after nearly a decade of isolation to leading economic centers. During this short span of time Iran is breaking records in international meetings and deals. In the latest of these developments, Minister of Foreign Affairs Mohammad Javad Zarif visited UK at the invitation of London. During the visit he met with his British counterpart Philip Hammond and the two sides agreed to restart issuance of visas in their embassies in Tehran and London in a near future. Many dailies devoted their main headlines to the visit and its outcomes.
