A meeting in Tehran on ways of promoting healthy administrative strategies and countering corruption and the message the Supreme Leader sent to the meeting, which was attended by senior state officials, dominated the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Tuesday. In the message the leader urged officials with the three branches of government to match their words with action in turning up the heat on corruption. The comments of the executive, judiciary, and legislative chiefs in the same meeting made front-page headlines, too. Also in the headlines was the statement of the visiting Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari that Baghdad does not have any problem with Iran conducting air raids against IS positions on Iraqi soil.
