Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of newspapers on Tuesday and picked headlines from 23 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Iranians are preparing for new year celebrations as the next calendar year begins on March 19.

The last Tuesday night is celebrated in Iran by a fire festival which has derailed in the past few decades from a fire festival to a cracker phenomenon in the country in which dozens are killed every year.

Many headlines cautioned their readers about the dangers and accidents caused by the crackers in these days.

Above all, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s meeting with his Vietnamese counterpart in Tehran, and UNSC’s meeting which bore no further sanctions on Iran because of its missile launch took many headlines on Tuesday, March 15.
