IFP has taken a look at the front pages of newspapers on Sunday and picked headlines from 19 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Most Iranian dailies on Sunday led on the government’s reaction to allegations that it has illegally withdrawn $4.1 billion from the Foreign Exchange Reserve Fund. The government insists that there has been no such withdrawal. Some MPs, among them a principlist heavyweight Ahmad Tavakoli, say the report by the Supreme Audit Court is compelling enough that the fund has been tapped. Images of major war games by the Iranian Army in the south and news about Russia’s new military doctrine appeared on the front pages of several dailies too.
