The interests of Iranian newspapers published today, Wednesday, 15 September, varied between interest in domestic issues and interest in foreign ones.
Kayhan newspaper, which represents the guide in the Iranian media, believes that the arrival of Iranian fuel to Lebanon at the request of Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah has changed the region’s equations. The newspaper did not mention in its report how the political equations were changed due to the transportation of two or three trucks from Iran to Lebanon, except that it confirmed that Nasrallah valued and thanked the guide and President Ibrahim Raisi for sending the truck to Lebanon.
The fundamentalist newspaper “Watan Emroz” shortened its headline on the fuel transportation operation with one word: “We succeeded.” In the report, the newspaper stressed that the threats by Israel and the United States were “empty.”
While the newspaper “Ebtikar” touched on the visit of Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi to Iran, and published a report on its front page in which it asked: “Do Saudi Arabia and Iran exchange the opening of their embassies in Tehran and Riyadh?”
The moderate newspaper stated that Al-Kazemi’s mediation so far between Saudi Arabia and Iran has produced three rounds of negotiations, and wrote, quoting an Arab press that it did not name, that there is a fourth round that will be held soon between the two countries via an Iraqi.
While the fundamentalist newspaper, Sobh Emrouz, commented on Al-Kazemi’s visit, with a headline: “The possibility of opening the Saudi consulate in Mashhad.”
Iranian newspapers see that the return of diplomatic relations with Saudi Arabia directly affects the Iranian economy, as the disclosure of negotiations between Riyadh and Tehran in Baghdad affected, in a relative way, the recovery of the Iranian currency against foreign currencies.
Shahrvand newspaper wrote its headline: “Iran is close to official membership in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.” The newspaper says in its report that Tehran outperforms neighboring countries in this competition and that members of the organization, including China, Russia, India, Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan welcome Iran’s membership in the organization.
Meanwhile, the government newspaper “Iran” chose an interesting economic headline: “40 million dollars of “Bitcoin” are traded daily in the Iranian unofficial market.”
Many other newspapers mentioned the speech of the head of the judiciary, Mohseni Ecei, who said in an interview with economic activists that no result can be reached in the government economy alone, encouraging the private sector to participate in economic activity in the country.
The appointment of a new governor for Baluchistan caused an uproar in Iran, starting with the parliament and ending with the positions of the fundamentalists rejecting his appointment, and this decision may be the beginning of the dispute between the fundamentalists and the new president.
The newspaper “Iran Sharq” wrote about this dispute with the title: “The Fundamentalists’ Red Line”, and the newspaper “Aftab Yazd” had its headline: “The first coordinated attack of the fundamentalists against Ibrahim Raisi.”
The guide’s “Kayhan” newspaper attacked this appointment because of his “astronomical” salary in the “Omid Investment Management Group” company affiliated with the “Sepah” Bank.
And now we can follow the details of some news:
“Aftab Yazd”: the first coordinated attack by the fundamentalists against Ibrahim Raisi
Last Sunday, the appointment of Hossein Mudarres Khayabani as governor of Iran’s Sistan and Baluchestan province was announced. The appointment was accompanied by widespread protests, and constituted the first protest of the fundamentalist movement against Ibrahim Raisi. The Bloc of Balochistan Representatives in Parliament and through a consensus of the Minister of Interior announced their rejection of this appointment.
Al Sharq: Who are the possible supporting figures and blocs for Larijani’s party?
In recent days, statements about the formation of an alliance between former Interior Minister Nategh Nouri, former Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and former Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, after the latter announced his intention to form a new party in Iran.
The newspaper inquired about the possible supporting figures and blocs for Larijani, and stated that Nategh Nouri and Rouhani have great experience, and the presence of such figures in one party may help the success of the party, whose name Larijani has not yet announced.
It is noteworthy that Larijani’s denial of his eligibility by the Guardian Council, which is dominated by Supreme Leader Khamenei, in the presidential elections was accompanied by a huge media frenzy.
He said in an interview that he needs advice and criticism of such a party before announcing it, as he does not want his only goal to be access to power.
