A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on February 19

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday and picked headlines from 20 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers today continued to cover the ongoing crises in Iran, including the dust pollution in Khuzestan province [southwest] and the flood and heavy snow in southern and northern Iran, respectively.

The ongoing Munich Security Conference also received great coverage. Many newspapers covered the remarks made by various European and world leaders and the harsh criticisms levelled by Europe against the US and its new administration.

Another top story today was the remarks made by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on the sidelines of Munich Security Conference.

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