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 27, 2019, and picked headlines from 13 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Many outlets highlighted reports that the Special Purpose Vehicle, the EU solution for protecting Iran’s economic interests under JCPOA, is being eventually finalised.

The failure of the Expediency Council in making its mind on a bill on Iran’s accession to Palermo conventions, one of four bills required for Iran to get out of FATF’s black list, was another hot topic among Iranian media.

The political developments in Venezuela are also a hot topic on Iranian media, as the Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro is resisting pressure by domestic opponents and the US to step down.
