A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on December 11

Iran Front Page – IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, and picked headlines from 15 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story in Iranian papers today was the remarks made by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani about the heavy costs of Iran’s failure to adopt the standards set by global anti-money laundering body, Financial Action Task Force (FATF).

The remarks were widely criticized by conservative media, which argued the previous deal, JCPOA, did not lead to what Rouhani had promised, and his new promises – that FATF will make people’s lives less costly – won’t be realized either.

The ongoing protests in France also remained a top story, with conservative media blasting the Iranian Foreign Ministry for keeping silent over the violence.

The above issues, as well as many more, are highlighted in the following headlines and top stories:
