Tehran, IRNA - The following headlines appeared in English-language newspapers in the Iranian capital on Thursday:


--Biden’s failure to honor JCPOA betrayal of US voters: Rouhani

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani reminded his American counterpart that any procrastination in implementing the 2015 nuclear deal would spell a betrayal of election campaign promises, since Joe Biden had repeatedly attacked his predecessor for scrapping the accord.

Speaking at a cabinet session on Wednesday, Rouhani said although Biden had in his campaign trail frequently slammed Donald Trump for the mistake to pull Washington out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and admitted that the sanctions on Iran are futile, the new US administration has maintained Trump’s policy of crimes and economic war against Iran.

The president-elect, who currently serves as the chief of the Judiciary, explained that his former rivals expressed their views and proposals on the priorities that they assumed his administration should follow up on during the one month left until his swearing-in ceremony.


-- President-elect vows after meeting rivals: Era of ‘Friendship, Cooperation’

President-elect Ebrahim Raisi said on Wednesday that an era of “friendship, cooperation and empathy” has begun for all political groups to work toward resolving people’s problems.

-- Navy Chief: Foreign Forces Must Leave Persian Gulf

Iran’s navy chief on Wednesday called for an end to the presence of extra-regional forces, especially those of the United States, in the Persian Gulf, saying they have only created instability in the region.

“While the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman are a safe and stable region, in recent years we have witnessed increased insecurity in the Gulf of Aden and the Bab el-Mandeb Strait, and that’s why we do not understand the presence of coalition forces in the Persian Gulf. We believe that the main purpose of their presence is to undermine dialogue between the regional navies,” Rear Admiral Hussein Khanzadi said.
