A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on September 18

Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday and picked headlines from 20 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers on Sunday covered the Parliament’s approval of the IPC, a new model of oil contracts proposed by the Oil Ministry, and published reactions to the move.

A related top story was the conditional approval of Financial Action Task Force [FATF] deal by the Supreme National Security Council.

The remarks by Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Chief Ali Akbar Salehi about the West’s failure to fulfil its JCPOA commitments also received great coverage.
