IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday, July 9, and picked headlines from 14 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.
Newspapers today covered the remarks made by First Vice-President Es’haq Jahangiri about the need for trusting and reinforcing the country’s private sector.
The huge gas deal with Total also remained a top story after a week. Conservative newspapers criticized the secrecy of the deal, and pro-government papers covered Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh’s response to criticisms.
Another top story was the portal unveiled by Rouhani’s administration to provide people with free access to the information of state institutions. The move is part of the government’s efforts to promote Freedom of Information (FOI) and increase transparency.
