IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Thursday, December 6, 2018, and picked headlines from 13 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.
Newspapers today widely covered the Iranian Parliament’s ratification of an amendment to a bill on Iran’s accession to the Combating the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) convention, which had been earlier rejected by the Guardian Council.
Also a top story was the Iranian officials’ comments about Europe’s efforts to establish the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV), a financial channel aimed at facilitating trade with Tehran and bypassing the US sanctions.
The Yellow Vest protests in France and French President Emmanuel Macron’s abandonment of his tax fuel hikes also remained a top story, with some papers covering the rally of some Iranian students in front of the French embassy in Tehran in protest at the French police’s brutality against protesters.
