A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on June 29

The heads of Iran’s trio of government branches, President Hassan Rouhani, Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, and Judiciary Chief Sadeq Amoli Larijani, attended a judiciary conference in Tehran on Tuesday, June 28. The remarks made by the three politicians, particularly those of President Rouhani, were widely covered by all newspapers on Wednesday.

Newspapers, particularly the conservative ones, also covered the remarks by the Head of Iran’s General Inspection Office Nasser Seraj, who revealed the role of President Hassan Rouhani’s Brother, Hossein Fereydoun, in the appointment of the Bank Refah manager, who was recently dismissed for receiving huge salary payments.

The thaw in Turkey-Israel relations also remained a top story in many newspapers.
