A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on August 2

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday, August 2, 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 short meeting between Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his Saudi counterpart Adel al-Jubeir in the Turkish city of Istanbul. During the short encounter, the two sides shook hands and had a brief conversation.

A decision made by the Iranian committee tasked with monitoring the implementation of a nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers to counter the US violation of JCPOA also received great coverage. The 16-article decision was made by the committee chaired by President Hassan Rouhani.

The speculations about President Rouhani’s next cabinet line-up also remained a top story today. Rouhani will swear in on Saturday in the Parliament, and he will then have two weeks to propose his ministers who need to receive a vote of confidence by the lawmakers.
