A look at Iranian newspaper front pages on July 9

Newspapers on Saturday covered the remarks by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, in two separate speeches. The Leader addressed a large group of Iranian people in Eid al-Fitr prayers on Wednesday, and also met Iranian officials and people as well as ambassadors of Islamic countries after the prayers. In his first speech, the Leader underlined the need for confronting the issue of huge salaries and prosecution of those who received such illegitimate payments, and in the second speech, Ayatollah Khamenei highlighted the issue of Palestine.

The death of acclaimed filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami and the possible medical errors that might have caused his death was also covered by newspapers, which were closed for three days on Eid al-Fitr holidays.

The US Congress’ ban on sale of planes to Iran and President Barack Obama’s vow to veto the plan was also a top story today. The reactions in Iran were also covered.
