IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday, February 17, 2019, and picked headlines from 14 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Reactions to the Wednesday terrorist attack in south-eastern Iran, which killed 27 and wounded 13 IRGC forces, remained a top story today, with several papers covering Irans warning to Pakistan over its failure to counter the terrorists along the Iranian border.

Also a top story today was the Expediency Councils failure to reach a consensus over a bill on Irans accession to the Palermo Convention, which has been proposed by the government to get Iran out of the blacklist of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). The Council has postponed the voting to its next meeting two weeks later.

Europes rejection of the US call for withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal also received great coverage today.
