The top story in today’s newspapers was US President Donald Trump’s upcoming declaration of his new Iran strategy, particularly his possible decertification of Iran nuclear deal.
Newspapers also covered President Hassan Rouhani’s support for the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps ahead of Trump’s expected designation of IRGC as a terrorist organization. Iran has warned that such move will receive crushing responses.
The latest report by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) about Iran’s economy in 2016 also received great coverage. Reformist and pro-government papers highlighted its positive aspects, including the economic growth rate of over 12% and the single-digit inflation rate, and conservative ones covered the high unemployment rate reported by the international body.
