Iran Newspaper front pages

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

Newspapers on Tuesday covered the letter written by ex-president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the US President Barack Obama. The reactions mainly came from reformist outlets, who described the move as a show-off aimed at gaining more popularity ahead of next year’s presidential elections.

The ongoing visit of President Hassan Rouhani to the capital of Azerbaijan Republic and his trilateral meeting with Russian and Azeri counterparts also received great coverage.
