A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on November 18

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday, February 28, and picked headlines from 19 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The failed attempt by the UK and its allies at the UN Security Council to pass an anti-Iran resolution remained a top story today.

Several papers also covered the fluctuations in dollar rate and the ongoing actions taken by the Central Bank to control the forex market.

Also a top story was the measures taken by the Rouhani administration to make people prepared for a water crisis in the country, especially a recent conference attended by Deputy Foreign Minister Seyyed Abbas Araqchi and former IRGC Chief-Commander Major General Rahim Safavi on the need to cope with the danger of water shortage.

The above issues, as well as many more, are highlighted in the following headlines and top stories:
