Mohammad Javad Zarif, "A Message From Iran": Do You Believe Zarif or Khamenei?

In a New York Times guest op-ed entitled "A Message From Iran," Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif declares:

"On a broader level, regional dialogue should be based on generally recognized principles and shared objectives, notably respect for sovereignty, territorial integrity and political independence of all states; inviolability of international boundaries; noninterference in internal affairs; peaceful settlement of disputes; impermissibility of threat or use of force; and promotion of peace, stability, progress and prosperity in the region."

But compare this missive with that of Iranian Supreme Leader Khamenei in a tweet dated November 8, 2014:

"This barbaric, wolflike & infanticidal regime of #Israel which spares no crime has no cure but to be annihilated."

Whom do you believe, the foreign minister or the supreme leader?

Or perhaps the foreign minister was calling for sovereignty, territorial integrity and political independence, etc.,  in a region that is "Judenfrei"?
