Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Thursday and picked headlines from 17 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Thursday newspapers mainly focused on a rare suggestion by Iranian Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani to start human rights talks with Europe under certain conditions.

The remarks made by President Hassan Rouhani in his live televised interview on Tuesday night also remained a top story today.

Papers also covered the claim by Wall Street Journal about the USA’s payment of $400m to Iran in exchange for the release of its prisoners.

An Islamic human rights prize was also given to Sheikh Issa Qassim, the prominent Bahraini cleric, in a ceremony held in Tehran.

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