Netanyahu: At a time when Iran seeks to use Syria as a platform to destroy Israel, President Trump boldly recognizes Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. Thank you President Trump. @realDonaldTrump
U.S. Secretary of State @SecPompeo to @AlArabiya: we regret the previous U.S. administration's lenient stance on countering Hezbollah. We have not failed in confronting Iran's influence in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen.
Khamenei: Politics and power in Western states including U.S. and Europe are oppressive, bully, illogical and avaricious. They don't get any logic. From within, Western politicians are barbaric. Don't be surprised. They're well-dressed with suits, ties and perfumes, but they're barbaric.
Khamenei: To EU politicians and media, massacre of Muslims in NewZealand wasn't a terrorist attack; they call it an armed attack. Wherever there's a movement against someone supported by West, they talk of terrorism and human rights. But in this case, they won't openly call it terrorism.
Khamenei: It's been repeated recently that Europeans have created instex financial channel. This is more like a joke, a bitter joke. What they're responsible to do is totally different from what they're doing. Once again, Europeans stabbed us in the back. We can't expect them anything.
Khamenei: On JCPOA, a 7-signatory agreement was achieved. One party i.e. U.S. withdrew. European partners had the responsibility to stand up to U.S. Not only they didn't do so, they practically withdrew from it and imposed new sanctions on Iran while they insisted we stay with JCPOA.
Khamenei: I don't know a state in region, maybe in world worse than Saudi government: despotic, dictatorial, corrupt, tyrannical and dependent. If they build nuclear plants and missiles for Saudis, I won't worry; because I know in near future those facilities will be captured by Muslim strivers.
Khamenei: Besides defeating enemies, we must develop deterrence. Enemies should see they can't find a gap in our economy where they can hit a blow; just as is the case with our military power. Today enemies know that Iran can fight, defeat enemies in region with precision-guided missiles.
Khamenei: We must have economic deterrent power
Khamenei says Iran will continue to boost its defense power despite US pressure
Khamenei: Poetry is national wealth. Anyone who doubts it, has doubted a most obvious fact. Poems are sources of wealth for any country. 1stly, this wealth should be created; 2ndly, it should be expanded every day; 3rdly, it should be used for meeting a country's needs. 9/15/08
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani: US sanctions are the cause of our economic problems
Khamenei: I offer my heartfelt greetings, salutations and peace to the Imam of our time (may our souls be sacrificed for him) and I request his prayers for you the dear nation; I ask God to bestow prosperity and bliss upon the Iranian nation and all nations that celebrate Nowruz. NowruzMubarak
Khamenei: Production is this year's pivotal matter; I've chosen new year's motto as "Production Boom". Everyone should help production boom. Throughout the year, God willing, it'll be significantly felt in country. If this is fulfilled, hopefully resolving of economic problems will start.
Khamenei: Last year, Iranian nation truly shone. Enemies had plots against the nation but nation's acumen and youth's efforts nullified their plots. In the face of U.S. and EU's severe and 'unprecedented' sanctions, Iranian nation staged a firm and mighty reaction on political and economic arenas.
Khamenei: I am grateful to God for He planned this year's Nowruz to coincide with ImamAli's auspicious birthday. I congratulate the Iranian nation: Eid Mubarak to you dear compatriots. I wish you a year full of prosperity, health, delighted hearts, and materialistic and spiritual blessings.

Khamenei: In the face of Islam, recreational activities and making others happy and hopeful is very important. So, when you make others happy, you're actually performing an act of worship. 12/22/92
Khamenei: A life without happinessand smiles is a hellish one. A heavenly life is one with smiles. ImamAli said: A believer's happiness is on his faceand his sorrow hidden in his heart. If you have a sorrow, keep it in your heart. That's how a believer is.12/22/92 InternationalDayOfHappiness
