Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz on Friday joined Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and other government ministers, warning against the proposed deal world powers are working to sign with Iran during current nuclear talks in Geneva.

"The deal that is being formulated with Iran is a historic mistake, that could have grave consequences on Israel and the entire world," he said.

"With a smile attack and meaningless compromises, Iran managed to fool the West and receive significant sanction relief - a relief that could cause the deterioration of the entire sanctions regime and make it harder to reach an agreement for a full disarmament of Iran's military nuclear program," he added.

This agreement will allow Iran both to keep its enriched uranium, and to build a plutonium reactor in Arak, Steinitz concluded.
