A look at Iranian newspaper front pages on Nov. 20

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

Introduction of Mohammad Farhadi, a one-time health minister, by President Hassan Rouhani as his pick for science minister dominated the front pages of Iranian dailies on Thursday. A last round of talks in Vienna between Iran and major powers to clinch a nuclear deal ahead of the November 24 deadline also generated headlines. And news about the passing of Gholamhossein Mazloumi, a great soccer player in the late 1970s and early 80s, appeared on the front pages of most newspapers, too.
