IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday and picked headlines from 23 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Iranian newspapers on Wednesday focused on President Rouhani’s remarks on the country’s determination to reclaim its rights in the legal dispute with the US.

They also covered an interview with Gholam-Hossein Mesbahi Moqaddam, a member of parliament, who has revealed a controversial nuclear report by former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to the Supreme Leader.

Another top story was the statements by Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Chief Ali Akbar Salehi, who said the country will proceed with caution in dealing with the US, particularly the sale of heavy water to Washington.
