A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on September 3

Iran Front Page – IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Monday, September 3, 2018, and picked headlines from 13 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story in all papers today was the remarks made by the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in a meeting with a group of air defence commanders. During the meeting, the Leader said the country’s armed forces must boost their defence capabilities even though there is no possibility for a military conflict.

Also a top story was a Sunday parliamentary session, during which Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif responded to questions raised by a conservative lawmaker. Other MPs finally announced they had been convinced by Zarif’s comments.

The final court session of Esfandyar Rahim-Mashaei, the former chief of staff and a close ally of former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, also received great coverage.

A decision by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to dismiss his national security advisor also remained a topic of discussion in many papers today.
