A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on November 19

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday, January 20, 2019, and picked headlines from 13 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story in all papers today was the tense meeting of Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Seyyed Abbas Araqchi with European diplomats in Tehran. New details reveal that he has left the room in protest to their comments on Iran missile tests.

Several papers also covered Head of Iran’s Foreign Policy Strategic Council Kamal Kharrazi’s criticism of non-implementation of SPV.  The Iranian official said why Europeans held talks with Iran if they had no influence on their companies.

The story of Press TV anchor and journalist Marzieh Hashemi’s arrest in the United States and the decision of the court to keep her in custody was another headline of papers today.
