A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on November 19

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Tuesday, February 19, 2019, and picked headlines from 10 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Almost all papers today highlighted the remarks made by the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, who urged officials to beware of the Europeans’ deceit.

Iranian papers today widely covered the inauguration of the third phase of a gas condensate plant at Persian Gulf Star Refinery in southern Iran, in a ceremony attended by President Hassan Rouhani. The refinery has made Iran self-sufficient in petrol production, and even lets the country export its petrol.

Also a top story was the Iranian security forces’ arrest of some of the terrorists behind the recent attack on IRGC forces in south-eastern Iran.

The visit of a high-ranking Iranian delegation to China – including Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh, and Central Bank Governor Abdolnasser Hemmati – also received great coverage.
