Russian FM Sergey Lavrov meets officials from the Foreign Ministries of Turkey and Iran to discuss Syria/Idlib.
Khamenei: A global congress was needed for the Shias of the time of the Imams. That rendezvous is the day of Arbaeen; the place is the land of Karbala; because the spirit of Shiism is the spirit of Karbala, the spirit of Ashura. The pulse of Ashura is evident within the body of Shia.
Khamenei: Arbaeen pilgrimage is the convention of the Shias at a global congress on a memorable land: a land with glorious memories, the land of dead and the resting place of those killed for the sake of God. Followers of Shiism gather there to pledge brotherhood and stronger loyalty.
Khamenei: Shiism was a community that lived dispersedly in various lands and territories. It was an organization and a union with calculated submission, commanded speakouts, and planned silence: everything was thought out. There was only one shortcoming: they did not meet often.
Iran, Turkey and Russia have agreed on two-thirds of a new constitution for Syria; hope to complete final draft soon- Officials.
Khamenei: Had a group of people not made that sacrifice then, today the glory of the love for ImamHussain would not sweep the world in such a manner. Today you can see people from various nations- including Persian, Azeri, Urdu and Europeans and Americans join the ArbaeenWalk.
Khamenei: The enemy had come close to the tomb of Imam Hussain in Karbala, to Kadhimiya and also to Zeinabiyeh; they had actually seized those places. Your and other families' youth went to deter this plight from Islam and Muslims.
Khamenei: What killed defenders of the shrine did is like the sacrifice by those who gave their lives to protect ImamHussain's tomb. There was a day when Abbasid caliphs wanted to destroy Imam Hussain's tomb and probably other sacred graves but some gave their lives to prevent them.

Al Tanf: The top US commander for the Middle East Army Gen. Joseph Votel made an unannounced visit Monday (October 22) to a key military outpost in southern Syria, pressing the need for a continued US presence there to root out remaining Islamic State fighters and serve as leverage against growing Iranian activity in the region.
Khamenei: The authorities in the Islamic establishment must know that, being grateful to God for the position they have received requires that they get closer to the people, interact with them and show more kindness and care for them.
Khamenei: In ImamAli's logic anyone who becomes prominent and respected for his position must not start treating people differently, distancing himself from the people.
Khamenei: Some people are into the habit of crediting the Westerners for whatever good in the Islamic society. One is truly appalled by their low-mindedness. They say, "yes, they taught us this transparency;" no, Imam Ali (a.s.) has taught us transparency.
Khamenei: ImamAli says, your right on me is that, I shall hide no secret form you, unless in wars and affairs wherein we face an enemy. In security, military issues there is no room for transparency. Aside from that, officials must have transparency and hide no secrets from the people.
