A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on August 2

Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Tuesday and picked headlines from 15 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

All newspapers on Tuesday covered the remarks made by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in an address to a large group of people from different parts of Iran. In the address, the Leader referred to the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers (JCPOA), and complained that it has not had any influence on people’s lives after 6 months. Ayatollah Khamenei also criticized the US violation of its commitments, and reiterated the unreliability of Washington.

Another top story today is the live TV address President Hassan Rouhani is going to deliver tonight. In its Tuesday issue, Kayhan has listed a large number of questions and asked the President to answer them in his address. Most of them are focused on his promises about the outcomes of JCPOA as well as his vow to improve the country’s economic situation.

Newspapers also covered a recent order by President Rouhani to postpone the government’s nationwide employment test due to gender discriminations. Rouhani said that gender equality and fairness should be observed in all job vacancies, and women’s rights should be ensured. Among the Tuesday newspapers, Iran published an article in favour of the order, and Javan criticized it, saying that the move is just aimed at receiving women’s votes in next year’s presidential elections.
