IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday, August 13, and picked headlines from 14 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.
Newspapers today continued to review the qualifications of President Hassan Rouhani’s proposed ministers, particularly the Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi, one of the youngest-ever ministers in Iran’s history.
One of the most important reports today was the Etemad daily newspaper’s interview with Deputy Oil Minister Amir-Hossein Zamaninia about the details of Iran’s huge deal with French energy giant Total.
The controversy over Ehsan Hajsafi and Masoud Shojaei, two Iranian football players who appeared in their Greek side’s match against an Israeli team, also remained a top story today. Iran’s ministry of sports has threatened that they will not be allowed to play for the national team anymore, but this has sparked FIFA’s concern, which called for Iran’s explanation.
The above issues, as well as many more, are highlighted in the following headlines and top stories:
