Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz reiterated the Israeli government’s concern that Western powers could be duped by Iran into removing sanctions without ensuring that Tehran’s capability to produce nuclear weapons are adequately curtailed.

At the start of his appearance before the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Wednesday, Steinitz said that the West should heed the lessons of the past.

“The concern for us is that Geneva 2013 will turn into Munich 1938,” he said, referring to the agreement struck by western European powers and Nazi Germany before World War Two. “History has seen agreements that were celebrated by the world only to see it lead to war.”
