Iran Front Page – IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Thursday, July 12, 2018, and picked headlines from 18 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers today widely covered the visit of Iranian special envoy Ali Akbar Velayati to Moscow, where he was supposed to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin to convey messages from Iran’s Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani.

The rift between the US and Europe, particularly the impact of US President Donald Trump’s recent stances on the NATO summit, also received great coverage.

Also a top story was the widespread criticisms of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) for airing confessions of a teenage girl named ‘Maedeh Hojabri’ who had been arrested for posting clips of her dances on her Instagram account.
