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 8, and picked headlines from 21 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story in all newspapers today was the upcoming announcement of Trump’s decision on the Iran nuclear deal, which is slated for Tuesday night. The European Union has already stated that it will remain in the JCPOA regardless of Trump’s decision. However, speculations about the possible consequences of the decision have grabbed the headlines in Iran.

Several papers today also highlighted the meetings between Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and a number of US politicians, including former US Secretary of State John Kerry and other influential figures from both GOP and Democrat parties.

The victory of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah and its allies in the Arab country’s parliamentary votes also received great coverage, particularly in conservative papers.
