A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on May 1

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Monday and picked headlines from 13 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

All newspapers today covered the remarks made by the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with a group of workers ahead of Int’l Workers Day.

The Leader rejected the idea that an Iranian administration has averted a war on Iran, and stressed that it was the Iranian people’s turnout that removed the spectre of war, not a particular government.

They also covered the inauguration of Persian Gulf Star refinery in southern Iran, which will make the country self-sufficient in petrol production once completely developed.

President Rouhani, who launched the refinery in the port city of Bandar Abbas, said it is a result of the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers.

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