IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Monday and picked headlines from 14 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers today covered a public session of Tehran’s City Council where Mayor of Tehran Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf defended his performance in managing the Plasco incident’s crisis, but was faced with councillors’ call for his resignation.

US President Donald Trump’s clash with the US judiciary over the cancellation of his visa ban also received great coverage.
