The issue of Iran nuclear deal, also known as JCPOA, has remained a top story in Iranian newspapers amid the recent verdict issued for a former member of Iran’s nuclear negotiating team, the US stonewalling in JCPOA implementation, and the possibility of Trump’s withdrawal from the deal.
On Wednesday, several papers tried to predict Trump’s decision about his new Iran strategy and provide suggestions for Iran’s possible reaction to the US violation of the nuclear deal.
The conservative paper Kayhan, in its op-ed, said the US president is trying to intensify anti-Iran sanctions and deprive it of JCPOA benefits while keeping the nuclear deal.
Reformist papers also tried to introduce Abdol-Rasoul Dorri Esfahani, the former member of Iran’s nuclear negotiating team sentenced to 5 years in prison for espionage, as someone unrelated to the Foreign Ministry’s negotiating team.
Also on domestic issues, newspapers continued to warn about the increase in dollar rate and the country’s economic situation, while also releasing reports on the possibility of a change in Iran’s Constitution.
