A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on February 13

Iran Front Page – IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Wednesday, February 13, 2019, and picked headlines from 11 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The top story in all papers today was the latest war of words between Iranian and American officials, particularly the tweet by US President Donald Trump and the response he received from Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Also a top story was the upcoming Warsaw Summit, which is to be held by the US in the Polish capital and is expected to be an anti-Iran meeting of Western, Israeli, and Arab foreign countries, even though Poland has vowed it will have nothing to do with Iran.

The Thursday meeting between Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, and the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi also received great coverage. The issue of Syria and efforts by the three guarantor states to bring back peace to the country will be the focus of the trilateral meeting.
