IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Monday, October 23, and picked headlines from 17 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.
A top story in today’s newspapers was the two Iranian girls who committed suicide in the city of Isfahan under the influence of ‘Blue Whale’ game. The incident was shocking and unbelievable for the Iranian society and experts who thought the dangerous Russian game had not entered Iran.
The Iraqi prime minister’s visit to Saudi Arabia and the trilateral meeting he held with US Secretary of State and the Saudi officials also received great coverage. Iranian papers argue that Saudi Arabia and the US are planning to keep Baghdad away from Tehran and counter Iran’s regional influence. However, Iran says Iraqi PM Haider al-Abadi will also visit Tehran in the near future, and this will help Iran to be informed about the results of Riyadh meeting soon.
Several papers also covered the non-proliferation conference in Moscow and the remarks made about the Iran nuclear deal. Russia and Europe’s support for JCPOA and the comments made by Iranian FM Javad Zarif and Deputy FM Abbas Araqchi about US violation of its commitments also received great coverage.
