A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on July 3

Newspapers on Sunday continued covering the ongoing issue of astronomical salaries and the government’s campaign against the offending managers. The latest development was the mass resignation of National Development Fund executives over the leakage of their huge salaries.

An agreement between Iran and the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is also covered by many media outlets. Conservatives are criticizing the government for making secret deals with the international body, saying that foreigners are going to have access to the bank accounts of Iranians following the deal. Officials, however, stress that if Iran wants to have ties with global banks, it has to follow FATF rules.

The above issues as well as many more are highlighted in the following headlines:
