Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Thursday and picked headlines from 17 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Iranian newspapers on Thursday focused on the remarks made by US Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman on Iran Talks almost one month ago, which were newly translated by Fars.

The pro-JCPOA statements by Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani were also a hot story.

The papers also covered the appointment of Abdolali Ali Asgari as the new head of Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) following the resignation of Mohammad Sarafraz.
