IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday, September 16, 2018, and picked headlines from 14 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.
The top story in most newspapers today was remarks by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in his interview with Der Spiegel, in which he said the Islamic Republic would increase its uranium enrichment if the EU fails to save the Iran nuclear deal.
Also a top story was Iran’s selection of Vahid Jalilvand’s drama ‘No Date No Signature’ as the country’s official submission to the Academy Awards. The selection has sparked controversy among conservatives, who believe the film portrays a negative image of Iran, and there were better choices available, including ‘In Damascus Time’ and ‘Abu Ghraib Strait’.
A failed attempt to attack the Iranian embassy in Paris conducted by elements affiliated with a Kurdish anti-Iran group also received great coverage.
