A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on July 4

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei met a group of Iranian university students on Sunday, July 3. In the friendly atmosphere of the meeting, many students delivered their speeches and asked their questions. Some of them even criticized the Leader while they thought it would have consequences for them, but Ayatollah Khamenei welcomed such criticisms and said that it is not a crime. Almost all newspapers covered the Leader’s remarks in the meeting on their front pages.

The leakage of 20 million Iranian mobile phone users and official reactions to the issue also received great coverage today.

The issue of astronomical salaries and the prosecution and resignation of offending executives who received such huge payments also remained a top story in many papers.

Iranian director Asghar Farhadi’s latest film, The Salesman, received the Best International Film at Munich Film Festival. The film’s victory, especially after its previous success in Cannes Film Festival, was widely covered by top newspapers.

The abovementioned topics, as well as several other issues, are highlighted in the following headlines:
