Several papers today covered the World Economic Forum held in the Swiss city of Davos, and criticized the Iranian foreign minister for not attending the important summit, where anti-JCPOA lobbies spoke out against Iran.

Also a top story was the Turkish operation in the Syrian city of Afrin, and the US warning about Ankara’s extension of the war to the SDF-controlled Manbij, near the Iraqi border.

A decision by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) to upgrade Iran’s risk rating to 5 also received great coverage.
