A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on May 22

A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on November 19

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Tuesday, May 22, and picked headlines from 21 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story in almost all papers today was the new Iran strategy declared by US State Secretary Mike Pompeo, in which he urged Iran to fulfil 12 requirements if it wants US sanctions lifted.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s reaction to Pompeo’s comments, as well as the statement released by the Iranian foreign ministry to denounce the strategy, also received great coverage.

Several papers also released articles discussing the repercussions of the upcoming return of US sanctions, particularly the fate of Iran’s deals with Airbus and ATR to buy passenger planes.

The above issues, as well as many more, are highlighted in the following headlines and top stories:
