UNGA Speeches Make Headlines in Iran on September 26

A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on November 19

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday, September 26, 2018, and picked headlines from 17 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

All papers today covered the speeches delivered by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and US President Donald Trump at the 73rd gathering of the UN General Assembly in New York.

Also a top story today was the meeting of Iran and the P4+1 – Russia, China, Germany, France, the UK, and the EU Foreign Policy Chief – in New York, during which the EU vowed to create independent payment channels for maintaining trade with Iran and save the Iran nuclear deal.

The Iranian Parliament’s approval of two bills related to Iran’s adoption of the FATF standards also received great coverage today. The bills, which had been rejected by the Guardian Council, now need the ratification of the Expediency Council to be signed into law.

The above issues, as well as many more, are highlighted in the following headlines and top stories:
