Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Tuesday and picked headlines from 20 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers on Tuesday covered the ongoing visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s representative to Iran and his meetings with top Iranian diplomats. The majority of papers highlighted the purposes behind the visit, and pointed to the hopes for an end to Syrian crisis thanks to Iran-Russia-Turkey cooperation.

They also covered a controversial ICT conference, ‘Iran Connect’, due to be held in Tehran. There were reports that Iranian individuals whose names are in the international sanctions list are not allowed to participate.

The remarks about the positive and negative results of JCPOA have also remained a top story.

The above issues as well as many more are covered in the following headlines:
