Sermon by Ayatollah Khamenei at the end of the Ramadan, as reported on his website --

Referring to the slogans “Death to Israel” and “Death to the US” chanted by the Iranian nation on the Quds (Jerusalem) Day, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution said, “Major orientations of the Iranian nation should be understood through these slogans and not on the basis of the biased language of foreigners, which is unfortunately repeated by some people who misunderstand [the realities] inside [the country].” In his second sermon, Ayatollah Khamenei referred to tragic developments in the region, saying, “Unfortunately, unholy and mischievous hands made the blessed month of Ramadan bitter and difficult for many nations in the region [including] in Yemen, Bahrain, Palestine and Syria. These issues are important for the people of Iran.”

By the way, when he mentions the problems in Syria, he doesn't mean the ones caused by Bashar al-Assad.
