A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on December 11

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Monday, December 11, and picked headlines from 15 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Almost all Iranian newspapers today covered the remarks made by the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in a Sunday meeting with Alireza Karimi, the wrestler who intentionally lost his match against the Russian rival in order to avoid facing an Israeli wrestler. The Leader praised Karimi for what he did, and said he felt proud that the wrestler gave up on his right to defend the high cause of Palestine.

The visit of UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson to Tehran and his meetings with top Iranian officials also received great coverage.

Meanwhile, the top story today was President Hassan Rouhani’s submission of his proposed budget for the next fiscal year. The details of the budget have been widely discussed, praised, and criticized by both reformists and conservatives.
