We hope that the people of Kashmir will soon enjoy peace and tranquility: Ayatollah Khamenei

We hope the conflicts of Kashmir will be resolved, in the best way possible, in a way that guarantees the rights and interests of the people, so that Kashmiris can enjoy peace and tranquility. 

--Statements made in meeting with the Indian Prime Minister on April 12, 2001

As for the issues of the world of Islam, I should say that many wounds have been inflicted on the body of the Islamic Ummah. The issues of Yemen have inflicted a big wound on the body of the Islamic Ummah. The same is true of Syrian issues. The same is true of the various matters that exist in Islamic countries. The world of Islam should outspokenly support the people of Yemen! It should express its hatred of the oppressors and cruel individuals who attack those people in the days of the month of Ramadhan – this auspicious month. They should support the people of that country.

They should also support the people of Bahrain and the people of Kashmir. Our nation can be a source of support for this great movement of the world of Islam. As we are announcing our positions on friends and on enemies and opponents, the world of Islam too – particularly intellectuals and particularly the ulama [scholars] of the world of Islam – should follow the same method. They should adopt clear positions and make Allah the Exalted satisfied with them even if others and Taghuts become dissatisfied with them.

The Judiciary branch should legally intervene in issues, such as sanctions, confiscations by the US, and terrorism; furthermore, they should support oppressed figures and people of the world, like Sheikh Zakzaky, and the Muslims in Myanmar and Kashmir, firmly declaring support or opposition so that it would be reflected throughout the world.
