A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on February 21

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


Many newspapers covered the remarks made by the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei about the ‘heartrending’ crisis in south and southwest of Iran. The Leader urged the government to immediately cope with the dust pollution in Khuzestan and help those damaged by the flood in southern provinces.

The anti-Iran stances held by Turkish Foreign Minister in Munich Security Conference and Iran’s mild reaction to the remarks also received great coverage.

Newspapers also covered Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s interviews with foreign media outlets on the sidelines of Munich Security Conference.
