The report on Japanese carmaker Toyota’s apology to the US for selling a car to the Iranian embassy in India was so weird and regrettable for Iranians that was widely covered by Iranian papers on Wednesday. Several articles today described Toyota as an over-cautious and confused company.
The US Secretary of State’s visit to Iraq and Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi’s negative response to Rex Tillerson’s call for decreasing Iran’s role in Iraq was among other top stories covered in Iranian papers today.
The Guardian Council’s controversial decision to prevent a Zoroastrian member-elect of Yazd’s City Council from taking office grabbed the headlines today. Several papers argued that the Guardian Council’s insistence on its decision comes as religious minorities including Zoroastrians have representatives in the Iranian Parliament, which is a higher-ranking body of government in Iran.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s visit to Africa also received great coverage by economic papers. Iran is trying to use the African continent as an opportunity to expand its business and promote the export of Iranian goods.
