Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri’s visit to Syria and First Vice-President Es’haq Jahangiri’s trip to Turkey grabbed the headlines on Saturday.
General Baqeri in his visit to Syria visited the front lines of Aleppo and reviewed the latest situation of fight against terrorists. He also met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and delivered the letter of Iran’s Leader to him.
In his visit to Istanbul, Jahangiri attended the Developing-8 Summit and warned of plots to disintegrate the region in his meetings with Turkish officials. A deal between Tehran and Ankara to use national currencies, instead of US dollar, in bilateral trade was among other results of the trip covered by Iranian newspapers.
The nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers (known as JCPOA) also remained a top story in today’s papers. Pro-government media once again highlighted the EU’s support for the nuclear deal, and stressed that the deal is sustainable and operational even without the US.
On the other hand, conservative papers and critics of Rouhani’s government, particularly Kayhan, reflected the remarks made by British, French, and German officials who called for negotiations over Iran’s missile program and regional presence, and concluded that Europe is following the same path of US, looking for re-negotiation of JCPOA and receiving further concessions from Tehran.
The UAE’s appointment of an Iranian Baloch woman as the minister of science also hit the headlines.
