A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on July 8

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Saturday, July 8, and picked headlines from 18 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Most Iranian newspapers on Saturday covered the protest rallies held in Hamburg, Germany, against the G20 Summit. The first meeting between the US and Russian presidents also received great coverage. Trump and Putin met for the first time on the sidelines of the G20 Summit.

Some other papers, particularly the reformist ones, highlighted the issue of people’s privacy in their cars, and discussed its legal and religious aspects after the Iranian Police declared that its forces can inspect people’s cars without any legal permit as it is not part of their privacy.

The huge gas deal between Iran and the French giant Total also remained a hotly-debated issue after five days. Reformist and pro-government papers tried to respond to criticisms, and conservative ones continued attacking the government for not using the domestic capabilities.

Some newspapers covered the possible cabinet members and the future mayor of Tehran, who is to be chosen by the 21 reformist members of the City Council.

The above issues, as well as many more, are highlighted in the following headlines and top stories:
