A look at Iranian newspaper front pages on March 9

IFP- The top story today was the remarks made by the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei after planting a couple of seedlings on Week of Natural Resources. The Leader underlined the significance of protecting the country’s forests, and also praised Iranian fruits, calling on the government to stop importing fruits unless in necessary cases.

President Hassan Rouhani’s remarks in northeastern Iranian city of Mashhad also received great coverage. Rouhani talked about the importance of resolve and faith in dealing with foreign threats.

A Luxembourg court ruling to seize Iran’s assets was also a top story today. Some sources say the court has rejected the US court ruling to seize Iranian assets in the European country.

Ahmadinejad sent a letter to Trump’s closed Twitter account, copied Obama’s bio in his Twitter account, spoke English in the special way his friends do, posted odd tweet for Chavez, planted a tree sapling along with its metal box, and his letter to Trump was delivered to the security guard of Swiss embassy!
