The controversy over Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s comments about ‘rampant’ money laundering in Iran remained a top story today, as several conservative lawmakers have expedited their efforts to have him impeached over the comments. However, the conservative paper Javan urged the lawmakers not to try to impeach Zarif under the current sensitive situation, where he is the only voice of Iran against the US and its policies.
Also a top story was the remarks made by Iran’s nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi, during which he warned the international community of the ‘unpredictable’ and ‘ominous’ consequences of the annulment of the Iran nuclear deal.
The death of great Italian filmmaker Bernardo Bertolucci at the age of 77 also received great coverage in toda’s papers.
Several papers also covered the 6.4-magnitude earthquake which hit Kermanshah province in Western Iran, but fortunately left no one killed.
