A look at Iranian newspaper front pages on October 5

IFP – IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Thursday, October 5, and picked headlines from 12 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story in today’s newspapers was a meeting between the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, during which the former called for urgent action against the Iraqi Kurdistan’s secession.

Erdogan’s meeting with his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani and the MoUs signed between the two countries also received great coverage.

Another top story was the reactions to allegations raised about the arrest of Iranian Judiciary Chief’s daughter on charge of espionage for Britain. Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani said the rumours are not worth answering, and Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi totally rejected the allegations.

The upholding of a five-year prison term for a former member of Iran’s nuclear negotiating team was also highlighted in today’s papers. He has been convicted of espionage.
