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 26, 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 in his meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

On Monday, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad visited Iran in one of his rare foreign trips. The visit came after the Syrian army, backed by its allies including Iranian military advisors, managed to restore relative peace to the country following years of militancy. The Syrian president met with Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, and President Hassan Rouhani in the capital Tehran.

Some Iranian papers today covered the resignation of FM Mohammad Javad Zarif’s unofficial resignation which was announced on his page Monday night. The longtime diplomat made the announcement on his Instagram page, saying he was unable to continue his job.
