Iranian newspapers widely covered a response by Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution, to a letter by top Iranian Sunni cleric Sheikh Abdulhamid. In his response, the Leader urged all authorities to refrain from any discrimination against ethnicities and religions.
Another top story was the Iranian women who were not allowed to watch a FIFA World Cup qualifier between Iran and Syria in Tehran’s Azadi Stadium. A number of female lawmakers are going to question the sports minister over the issue.
President Hassan Rouhani’s remarks about the ongoing crisis in the Korean peninsula also received great coverage. Rouhani warned the US against threatening a country like North Korea which possesses nuclear weapons.
The world’s reactions to the genocide of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar also continued to be covered in Iranian papers today.
