A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on March 8

Iran Front Page- One of the top stories today was the promise made by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to report about his administration’s performance by the next week.

According to today’s newspapers, his report will be particularly focused on how much the government has pursued the Resistance Economy principles outlined by Iran’s Leader. This was a question raised in the Tuesday meeting of Assembly of Experts, where Rouhani was urged to apologise if he has failed to comply with the principles of Resistance Economy.

Rouhani’s criticism of the US report on Iran election also received great coverage. The Iranian president referred to the controversies over the US presidential votes, and urged them to take care of their own election instead of interfering in other countries’ affairs.
