Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Thursday and picked headlines from 21 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers on Thursday covered the remarks made by Ali Motahari, the outspoken Vice-Speaker of Iranian Parliament, in reaction to a recent letter of apology by Saeid Mortazavi, the former prosecutor-general of Tehran who allegedly had a role in the deaths of three Iranian protesters during the 2009 Iranian election protests.

They also referred to the statements made by IRGC Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi who warned Saudi Arabia against testing Iran’s patience.

Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani’s remarks about FATF also received great coverage. Shamkhani stressed that the SNSC has reached conclusion over the deal with Financial Action Task Force, but it should be signed by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei as well.

The above issues as well as many more are highlighted in the following headlines:
