Several papers today discussed the re-election of Ali Larijani as the Speaker of Iran’s Parliament for the 11th consecutive time, and the fewer votes he secured compared with previous times. Some analysts believe the votes showed Larijani won’t have a great chance in the 2021 presidential elections.
Also a top story today was US President Donald Trump’s decision to impose heavy tariffs on the import of steel from Europe and the EU’s reaction to the move, which is widely described as the beginning of a trade war.
Europe’s ongoing efforts to save the Iran nuclear deal and resist against the US sanctions also received great coverage.
